ITC open for online learning

Posted on 31/03/2020 by

You can continue to study towards an airline, travel or tourism qualification with ITC during New Zealand’s Level 4 Lockdown.

Here at ITC we haven’t stopped teaching during New Zealand’s Covid-19 Lockdown – classes just look a little different!

We’re open for online learning via our online platform, which our sister company Study From Home has been successfully using for over 15 years.

Students are continuing to learn and study towards their qualification, from their homes. We’re also accepting new enrolments, so you can get started soon. 

Our goal is for ITC’s online platform to be a place of learning and joy for our students, just like our campuses.

We’ve noticed there is a bit of confusion out there about what’s open and what’s not, so let us clarify exactly how we’re operating during Lockdown.

To all our #tourismheroes: We see you, and we’re thankful for you

Posted on 24/03/2020 by

Flights may be grounded, but we know there are still many #tourismheros working to help travellers all around the world.

In challenging times, some wise words from a man called Fred Rogers help us to focus on the good in the world. 

Fred Rogers once said:

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping’.” 

There are many, many helpers at the moment. Our doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals. Teachers, supermarket assistants, delivery drivers. Hospitality workers, baristas, customer service professionals. Friends and family caring for one another, neighbours checking in on each other, and even strangers sharing funny stories and memes on the internet to lighten our spirits. 

We are thankful for every single helper in this pandemic.

Today, we want to make a special shoutout to all our #tourismheroes – all of the people working in the tourism industry to help travellers navigate this exceptionally challenging time.

Be inspired: ‘I’m a bubbly, confident person thanks to ITC’

Posted on 17/03/2020 by

Sueni Lambert is happier and more outgoing since joining the ITC family.

Welcome to ‘Be Inspired’. Every few months, we give you a ‘behind-the-scenes’ glimpse into the journey of an inspirational ITC student and share what it took for them to achieve their goals. Everyone climbs their own Everest, and these students hope to inspire others by sharing the truth of their journey to the summit.

When a student walks into the doors of ITC for the first time, they often feel shy and nervous.

Yes, they are excited – but they are also a bit unsure of what’s to come.

When a student walks out the doors of ITC with their qualification, they are often the opposite – confident and outgoing, all traces of shyness gone.

This was certainly the case for Sueni Lambert, an inspiring ITC student who gained immense confidence during her time at the College.

Be inspired: ‘ITC gave me the confidence to pursue my goals’

Posted on 04/02/2020 by

Cheytarna Scott shares how studying at ITC gave her the confidence to pursue her dreams.

Welcome to ‘Be Inspired’. Every few months, we give you a ‘behind-the-scenes’ glimpse into the journey of an inspirational ITC student and share what it took for them to achieve their goals. Everyone climbs their own Everest, and these students hope to inspire others by sharing the truth of their journey to the summit.

Cheytarna Scott always knew she wanted to work in tourism. But, like many of us, she struggled to find the right time to begin.

There always seemed to be something else happening – something to distract her from her dreams.

Sometimes, the hardest thing in the world is to begin.

When she discovered ITC Study From Home – which allowed her to study flexibly and remotely – she knew the time was now.

Since making the decision to “just start”, she has gone from strength to strength, and is forever thankful to herself for taking the chance.
