Napier and the entire surrounding region has had such a challenging year that ITC wanted to step in and help out the best way we know how – with top-tier education.
So many high school students have had their learning disrupted due to the flooding and ongoing clean-up, so we decided to offer two short courses on Flight Attending.
Michelle Newsome took the first short course, and Laura Orsbourn took the second. Both team members are relatively new to the Schools Team, but absolutely knocked it out of the park and did an incredible job in Napier.In Schools, News | Tagged Flight attending, ITC in Schools, Schools Team, Short courses | Leave a reply
Late last year, ITC hosted an Air New Zealand open day on campus. This event was a fantastic opportunity where the Air New Zealand team gave a presentation to students and graduates, and did live interviews on the spot for candidates.
Following these interviews was a multi-step process, involving reference checks, swim tests, and training.
And now, we’re excited to see the first ITC graduate from that day, Menghour Pen, has finished his training and is becoming a flight attendant with Air New Zealand! However, there’s much more to Menghour’s story than just making it through the selection process.Airline, News, Student success | Tagged Air New Zealand, Flight attending, Graduate interview, Open Day |

Amy McPhail is a tutor at The International Travel College of New Zealand’s City Campus. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the classroom. We asked her five quick questions about her passion for aviation, travel and tourism.
1. What sparked your interest in travel and tourism?
When I left high school I had no idea what I wanted to do for a job, let alone a career. One day I was at home flicking through a newspaper and I came across an advertisement for a travel course. As soon as I saw the picture of the Flight Attendant, I knew that was what I wanted to do. A week later I was enrolled and starting my journey towards a fabulous career in travel and tourism. Completing my Certificate in Travel and Tourism gave me a great foundation to launch my career and introduced me to the wide variety of work available in this exciting industry. I have since worked in a variety of roles in the tourism industry, including working for Hilton Hotels, as a flight attendant for Virgin Australia, for a travel wholesaler and as a travel agent.Staff News | Tagged Aviation, Flight attending, ITC Staff, Travel and Tourism |
The International Travel College (ITC) recently delivered a short course in one of the North Island’s most popular tourist hubs, Rotorua. Home to bubbling geysers, beautiful lakes and an awesome collection of adventure activities, you couldn’t ask for a better backdrop to teach about travel and tourism.
Although ITC’s campuses are based in Auckland, the College has a team dedicated to delivering offsite short courses around New Zealand. Rotorua was the last offsite destination for 2014 and it certainly ended the year on a high note.In Schools | Tagged aviation short courses, Base Backpackers, Flight attending, flight attending workshops, jet boating, Kawarau Jet Boat, New Zealand, Novotel, Rotorua, tourism short courses | Leave a reply
