ITC celebrates the successes of our inspiring 2023 graduatesPosted on 22/11/2023 by Hayley Clark
“ITC’s long history of consistently working so collaboratively with the airline, travel and tourism industry in New Zealand has led us to being the first point of contact for businesses looking to recruit the future tourism workforce,” says Ceri Jenkins, Key Stakeholder Manager for ITC.
“The combination of these extensive partnerships, quality of teaching and the dedication and hard work of our Employment Consultants, enables us to provide the best service to our students to truly stand by our promises when we first meet our prospective students whilst they are still in school, or in their initial meeting with our course advisor to see which study option is best for them,” he continued.
All this training and dedication leads us to the end of each year where we look back and celebrate our many inspiring students who have gained incredible roles in the travel and tourism industry all over Aotearoa and beyond.

ITC’s dedicated Employment Consultants
One of the many ways in which ITC stands apart from other education providers and tertiary institutions is our two dedicated Employment Consultants. Sarndra Stephens and Kirsten Leith work tirelessly to connect students and graduates with work opportunities, and to help them navigate the hiring process.
“It is truly amazing the turn around and speed of our graduates securing jobs well and truly before they finish. It shows that the students who have invested in education are sought after by employers in our industry. A lot of these jobs are gained through their work experience,” explained Kirsten.
“What a fabulous year it has been. It has been so exciting working with the students and opening their horizons to all the opportunities out there for them. I think I get as excited as they do when they have been accepted for an industry job and I love seeing the Facebook posts of the students heading to the USA to take up Disneyworld and other internships and see all their amazing photos. Our students are in the skies, at the airport, on land and sea and I am immensely proud of them all,” added Sarndra.
Study with the International Travel College of New Zealand
“We provide high value relevant training and if they apply themselves to their studies and work with us through the pathway to employment programme, students will gain employment in our truly amazing industry and go on to forge rewarding and exciting careers,” stated Ceri Jenkins.
With another year successfully behind us, we congratulate our many successful students and graduates on their new roles and adventures. We also look forward to meeting our next intake of students later this month on November 27, and eagerly await to see their journeys in travel and tourism unfold before us.
