This summer season in New Zealand has been the most exciting for the travel and tourism industry in the country in years. For a group of ITC students and graduates, it has been an extra special time thanks to ITC and the cruise ship industry.
That’s because we recently set up a number of students with a fantastic opportunity to gain work experience in the industry.
Read on to learn more about how it happened (and how you could get valuable work experience when you study with ITC, too).News, Student success | Tagged Aviation, Cruise Industry, cruise ship industry, cruise ship season, Employment, Student work experience, Tourism, Travel, Work Experience | Leave a reply
Brooke Robinson is one of ITC’s lovely Christchurch graduates who graduated in late 2019. She completed both her Level 3 and Level 4 Certificates with ITC and attained Distinction with both.
Not to mention, she was also awarded the academic excellence award and was one of the student representatives for her class during level 4 as well.
Brooke grew up in a travel-loving household with both parents in the industry, and was always interested in following in their footsteps. After graduating ITC, she spent a year working in real estate, but always wanted to get back to tourism, so recently applied for a role with Air New Zealand – and landed it.
So of course, we interviewed Brooke to learn more about her new job. (more…)Posted in News, Student success | Tagged Air New Zealand, Employment, Graduate interview, ITC Award winning training | Leave a reply

Meet Kahurangi Bray: The ITC student working at one of New Zealand’s best (and most important) attractionsPosted on 15/12/2021 by Hayley Clark
Kahurangi Bray has been studying level 4 with ITC, but this summer, she had the opportunity to work at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.
She hadn’t quite finished her level 4 studies, so she took ITC’s flexible study option and has moved to our online platform, Study From Home, to allow her to finish the course.
This meant that she got to kick off her career in tourism and travel as soon as the opportunity arose, while also completing her qualifications. Everyone at ITC is incredibly proud of Kahu, and excited to see her take this first step.
So of course, we got in touch for an interview! (more…)Posted in News, Student success | Tagged Employment, Student interview, Student success, Study From Home, Study travel and tourism |

Lockdown has been tough on everyone, especially those in Auckland who remain in level 4. Yet this time around, the feel has been quite different, especially for businesses and employers in the travel and tourism industry.
Instead of hitting pause and wondering what happens next, many employers have been taking the pause to prepare for what happens next – lower levels, a mini post-lockdown boom, summer holidays, and hopefully, borders that start opening safely in the new year.
That’s why we’re seeing hiring continue and new jobs being advertised, even though travelling is limited right now. (more…)Posted in News, Student success, Travel and Tourism News | Tagged Employment, Lockdown, Study travel and tourism, Travel and Tourism, travel jobs | Leave a reply
