One of the highlights of the college year at ITC is the annual famil (familiarisation) trip. This is where students head off on adventures around New Zealand to get ‘familiar’ with some of the incredible tourism experiences on offer.
This gives them an insight into how it all works, and inspires them with areas they could work in once they graduate from ITC. And of course, it’s great fun!
Despite the challenges of 2022, the ITC famil still went ahead. This meant this year’s students get the most out of their education journey, going on an epic three-day adventure around Northland. ITC is one of few providers still offering such an amazing experience.

But without further ado, here’s some of the sparkling feedback we’ve received so far, and what you can get if you recommend ITC to a friend!News, Study inspiration | Tagged ITC Award winning training, Recommend a friend, Study tourism and travel | Leave a reply
For months and months, ITC has known that the tourism industry will need recruits to meet demands.
With the tourism boom around the corner, we certainly have seen an increased need for employees. Our Employment Consultants have been working really hard to support past students and it’s paid off for our recent graduates!
We knew that as soon as the border restrictions started to loosen, every tourism employer in the country would be looking to hire new staff and get ready for the inevitable rush of visitors who have been looking forward to getting to New Zealand ever since we closed our borders.
It’s our little ‘I told you so’ moment, and we couldn’t be more excited that it has finally arrived. (more…)Posted in News, Study inspiration | Tagged ITC Award winning training, Passion for travel, Travel and Tourism, Whanau Portal | Leave a reply
