ITC Schools Team announces plans for 2024Posted on 01/11/2023 by Hayley Clark
The International Travel College is one of New Zealand’s most well-regarded providers of travel and tourism education at the tertiary level. We are committed to supporting and improving travel and tourism education across the country at all levels.
That’s why we created ITC in Schools, a pathway for high schools to offer our education resources at NCEA levels 2 and 3. This provides a fantastic option for schools to offer a more diverse education, and a way for students to learn about the exciting possibilities of a career in travel and tourism.
Now that 2024 is just on the horizon, the ITC Schools Team has announced plans for the coming year. Here’s everything we’re looking forward to in the New Year!
Short courses – 2024 dates now available
Our Short Courses offer credits at levels 2 and 3 in travel, tourism, and aviation.
While these courses do focus on our industry, they are very broad in scope, covering communications, customer service, and cultural awareness. As such, the skills students learn in these courses are highly transferable to any industry.
We offer options that are one to three days, with a variety of focuses such as flight attending and adventure tourism, marketing, eco-tourism, leadership, and much more. All of these courses are delivered by our experienced team of tutors, who each offer a wealth of experience in the industry, and a passion for passing on their knowledge to the next generation.
We offer two Gateway Workbook options to support students in Gateway work placements. They can even use these workbooks with their part-time jobs to gain credits.
Gateway 1 offers a total of 8 credits at level 3, and Gateway 2 offers a total of 9 credits at level 3. Both workbooks can be applied to any industry – not just tourism – and are universal in terms of skills, covering basics such as leadership, communication, listening, and market research, all of which can be applied to any career.
Students complete these workbooks independently, then the books are sent to us for marking and schools report the credits using our provider code.
The CATE Conference – chat to us in person about 2024
CATE stands for the Careers and Transition Education Association, and is an organisation for those working in career and transition education. As high school students move from secondary school into tertiary study, CATE members plays a pivotal role in helping young learners to prepare for their future.
The CATE Conference is an annual gathering for those who work with learners in career and transition education. There are speakers and workshops throughout the three-day event, and ITC is excited to announce that the Schools Team will be in attendance this year.
The conference is being held from November 22 to 24 in Whangarei. Schools can meet us there and chat to us personally to learn about what we offer, and how our education programmes can support their students.
