ITC in High Schools – Nationwide

Auckland is at Alert Level 4 and the rest of New Zealand Alert Level 2. We continue to update this website with the latest information about the support we can offer you during this time.  Please see below the information regarding the different Alert Levels.

At the International Travel College it’s our vision to inspire students all over New Zealand to pursue a career in airline, travel or tourism. One of the ways we realise this vision is through providing quality education, short courses, and tourism resources to secondary schools throughout the country.

Our short courses are delivered nationwide and are an opportunity for students to gain credits towards NCEA levels 2 and 3. They also give students a taste of the tourism industry through site visits, guest speakers, and participating in exciting activities.  We offer a selection of these short course online for students who cannot attend the location options.

We also provide schools with Gateway workbooks and other teacher resources, both paper-based and online.

We continue to help meet the individual needs of schools, so please don’t hesitate to contact our Tourism Education Team for more information.

Generic Virtual Units

We have FOUR unit options designed for year 12 & 13 students looking for additional NCEA level 3 credits.  These units are diverse and can be used for all areas of school life – sports teams, school leaders, groups, clubs or students on work placements.  The answers to these assessments can be based on everyday situations such as home, school, work or sports team. 

  • Communication Events Unit 11097 – 3 Credits – $60+gst
    Communicating has never been so easy when you understand the individual components and importance of communicating effectively.  This unit will not only discuss the delivery of a message but how vital it is to respond correctly.
  • Communications Unit 9694 – 4 Credits – $80+gst
    It is important to understand the cycle of communication and the barriers that exist when speaking to others.  In a professional or personal circumstance it is the responsibility for both the person speaking and the person receiving the message.  By knowing these skills this will make you a better communicator in the workplace and in your own personal life.
  • Teams & Team Leadership Unit 27563 – 4 Credits – $80+gst
    To be successful sometimes we require help and support from others.  Being a part of a team and running a team efficiently will not only make you successful in business or in your personal life but will also help you work efficiently and increase overall performance in your personal life or in work.
  • Marketing Unit 2925 – 8 Credits – $160+gst
    Explore the competitive market and research companies to find out how they become an expert in their product or service.  This unit will give you the skills to research organisations that compete with one another and find out more about what makes them better than the others in their line of work.  Get creative and come up with exciting new ways for these companies to market their business.

The units would be emailed to you in a Word format so that your students can complete the work easily and without needing to print anything.  We have previously used these Units in our Gateway Workbooks but they have been re-developed for the current learning climate.

Tourism Class Resources

The tourism resources ITC offers high schools, named ‘I study’, are relevant for tourism classes or independent student learning nationwide. These units would suit a whole host of students including those currently not studying tourism. The online resources enable self-directed learning with often minimal support from a teacher required. There are two resource options:

      • Option 1: High Schools that do not have accreditation to deliver tourism use ITC to mark the work and use our provider code to report the credits to NZQA

DOL i-Study Resources

        • Option 2: High Schools that have accreditation and run tourism classes with work marked by the teacher
