ITC’s new Level 2 short courses a hit with secondary school studentsPosted on 16/04/2015 by Jess O'Connor
At the beginning of this year the International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC) unveiled four new Level 2 short courses for secondary school students. These new courses will help students achieve credits for vocational pathways, as well as give them a taste of tertiary life.
Students may choose from a short course in Aviation, Employment Skills, Customer Service or Problem Solving – or if it suits, they may decide to complete all four.
Each course is one day and worth 2 credits. Although short, these courses pack a big punch.
“Students who have attended a Level 2 course have got so much out of just one day,” says ITC Short Course Team Leader Mel Fey.
“They not only gain a lot of information about their chosen subject, but also an awareness of what career options are available to them in the future.”
ITC has been teaching short courses to secondary students for more than 15 years. The addition of Level 2 options brings the total short course count up to 11, with specialised Level 3 courses in subjects such as adventure tourism, flight attending and tour guiding.
All of the short courses are designed to provide students with a glimpse into New Zealand’s exciting tourism industry and better prepare them for study after high school.
Students are encouraged to attend more than one short course if this fits in with their study plan.
“Each of the courses are so different that even if they did them all, they would get pretty awesome experience in a variety of subjects,” says Mel.
