Meet Susan Afoa: Former student, current tutor, and Pacifica leadership personal development scholarship recipient!

Meet Susan Afoa: Former student, current tutor, and Pacifica leadership personal development scholarship recipient!

We first introduced Susan Afoa in June last year when she was a new tutor for ITC Botany, but when we first met her, it was almost 10 years ago when she enrolled as a student!

Susan has come a long way in the past decade, and we couldn’t be more proud of her success story, or more excited for her to be part of our team so she can help new students follow in her footsteps.

We recently caught up with Susan to learn more about her experiences, her work as a tutor, and her exciting new scholarship! (more…)

Posted on 24/02/2021 by

The latest Tourism New Zealand webinar has highlighted how Kiwis have found a new appreciation for local travel.

Tourism New Zealand has been keeping a close eye on travel and tourism within New Zealand, and has recently released its latest survey findings on the attitudes and goals of Kiwis when it comes to exploring their own backyard.

The January webinar hosted by Tourism New Zealand to discuss their findings was exciting, enlightening, and educational, and an important roadmap for tourism operators around the country.

Here are a few of our favourite highlights from the webinar. (more…)

The school year has begun – but are you in the right place?

Posted on 11/02/2021 by

Does your classroom look like this? If school isn’t the right place for you this year, ITC could be!

High schools throughout New Zealand are well underway with the new school year. It’s an exciting time as countless students begin their final year or two of secondary education and start thinking about the future.

However, there are almost certainly students out there who can’t help but feel like they’re just not in the right place. Whether they’ve never taken to the school system or simply have no interest in the subjects, it can be an awful and uncomfortable feeling of wasting time in one place when you could be somewhere else.

Sound familiar? (more…)

What will you say when future employers ask what you did in 2021?

Posted on 09/02/2021 by

Future employers will surely ask how you spent 2021. Do you know how you will answer?

It’s one of the most common questions in any interview, and you can almost guarantee that you’ll be asked it.

It’s the question that will always come up when there are gaps in your CV. Be it the time between high school and your first job, or even in between jobs. Employers will always want to know how you spent your time – and what that says about you.

In 2021, with so many people feeling unsure of what to do next, there might be quite a few gaps in resumes in the works. So how will you answer the question? (more…)

Closed borders? No problem! ITC continues working with international students

Posted on 27/01/2021 by

ITC tutor Sarah Rouse with some of her group during the International Summer Holiday short course.

New Zealand’s border have been closed to all but residents and citizens for almost a year, but that hasn’t stopped ITC from building and maintaining relationships with international students.

In fact, ITC has recently provided a short course for international students here in New Zealand, and an opportunity for local students to watch a presentation from a high school in Japan. 

Here’s a little more about each of those events. (more…)

It’s been a fantastic break – but now what? How does an international exchange sound?

Posted on 21/01/2021 by

The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs gives students an opportunity to enjoy an international exchange.

Christmas, New Year’s, and the start of the summer have been the break that we all desperately needed. A time to simply relax, let the stresses of the year slip away, and give ourselves a break from overthinking what comes next.

Now that we’re all feeling a little more refreshed and invigorated, we can finally tackle the question of what happens next! (more…)

ITC enrolment season off to a positive start

Posted on 20/01/2021 by

Three students recently enrolled at ITC after finishing a high school short course with tutor Sarah.

It’s the start of a new year, but it’s undoubtedly a new year unlike any other. With so much upheaval, it’s been hard to tell if students are even thinking about their study options. 

ITC is off to a positive start this year, meeting our future 2021 students. Recently we had the pleasure to meet three students who have signed up at once following a summer short course at their high school. (more…)
