Tessa Henwood - Head of Academic Services

Tessa Henwood - Head of Academic Services

I am originally from Sheffield in the UK, and arrived in New Zealand in January 2010. Since arriving I have travelled around the whole country from Cape Reinga in the North to Bluff in the South.

I studied Hospitality and Tourism Management at University and since then have gained a variety of work experience in the tourism, hospitality and events sectors, starting from the bottom and working my way up to management roles. I have learned a huge amount from my experiences, it has definitely been challenging at times but also awesome fun, and I love sharing my stories with the students at the college.

Having joined ITC in May 2013, I now work alongside Michelle, the Head of Group Services, to make sure the team, and most importantly the students are happy.  I love working at the college, everyday is different, and it is so exciting when the students move out into tourism jobs in New Zealand and around the world.
