ITC leads the way in aviation trainingPosted on 28/07/2015 by Jess O'Connor
The International Travel College of New Zealand is a leading provider of qualifications for the exciting aviation industry. Many of the ITC tutors come from aviation backgrounds and bring their passion and enthusiasm for the industry to the classroom. The result? Our graduates finish their studies feeling just as passionate about this wonderful career choice. So passionate, in fact, that one of them decided to share her story. Here is how ITC helped Jamee Miles follow her aviation dreams.
When I signed up for a Certificate in Aviation through the International Travel College I was unsure of what to expect. I just knew where I wanted to be and that this was the first step in the right direction.
Like many others in my class, I wanted to work at Auckland International Airport. There was something about the glamorous and busy environment that had my full attention. My passion, the layout of the course and the fantastic tutors made studying extremely fun.
Although study was at times quite challenging, I enjoyed it because I was so interested in what I was learning. Everything I had learnt during the six-month course had prepared me and set a foundation of basic knowledge for me to build on while in the workforce.
Towards the end of my time with ITC, I was accepted into a Passenger Service Agent position with Menzies Aviation. It wasn’t until then I realised how much ITC had prepared me for the role I was about to take on.
After almost two years of working at the airport I have now taken some time off to extend my family. I will most definitely be returning to the industry when my children are a bit older.
I still catch myself staring into the sky at the planes overhead or enjoying the unusual smell of jet fuel on arrival to the airport. Thank you to the International Travel College for providing me with the tools and knowledge I needed to get to where I wanted to be.

A note from ITC South Auckland Campus Manager Natasha Allen:
“When Jamee joined us her confident warm nature shone through and I knew that she would definitely reach her goal. To gain her first industry job with Menzies just prior to her course finishing shows her commitment, drive and passion for the Aviation world. Menzies takes care of Emirates’ ground staff duties so she gets to wear their gorgeous uniform – how stunning does she look!! Jamee knew what she wanted and she went out there and got it – this sort of drive and determination leads to success and I am so proud of her!”Posted in Student success | Tagged Aviation, career tips, graduate profiles, Student stories, Student success | Leave a reply
