ITC lauches 2011 ITC Study AwardsPosted on 25/08/2010 by itcnz
The International Travel College of New Zealand has just launched its 2011 ITC Study Awards. This year’s scholarship fund offers a total of over $22,000 to individuals and schools.
ITC will offer two individual awards of $2500 off course fees, and pupils from 34 local schools will also be offered the chance to apply for an ITC School Study Award of $500 off course fees.
ITC’s Sales Executive Ceri Jenkins liaises with schools and industry contacts and is thrilled that this year’s awards will give so many people a chance to fulfil their dream.
“The airline, travel and tourism industry offers a lot of very popular career choices. We want to attract the very best people to the industry and these scholarships are a way of doing that. It’s a chance to reward those who have the passion and the potential to really make a go of it in an exciting career,” says Ceri.
Applicants will be asked to create a promotional brochure about an Auckland-based activity or attraction that appeals to a young traveller or backpacker. The pick of the entries will then be invited to meet with ITC to discuss their promotion and why they want to pursue a career in the airline, travel and tourism industry.
“This worked really well last year as a way of identifying those with real dedication and motivation to get into the industry,” says Ceri.
“They’ve been really successful. Being awarded the scholarship was about more than just the money. It gave them a sense of confidence that they could achieve their goals,” said Ceri.
“The enterer process was fun and I really enjoyed it” said Daniel Wright a scholarship student from 2010. “I was so thrilled to receive the scholarship, studying at ITC has opened so many opportunties for me” he said.
“The Rugby World Cup next year is a chance to really show off the fantastic people we have in this industry in New Zealand,” says Ceri. “It will provide all of our students, including those who receive this year’s ITC Study Awards, with a huge range of opportunities to learn and gain experience on the job. We’re proud of what we know our students can contribute to this important national event and to the industry overall.”
