Meet Mya: The ITC student living out her dreams at Disney!

Posted on 14/05/2024 by

Mya at Disney!

In October last year, we interviewed a student with her sights set on the Disney Cultural Exchange Program. At the time, Mya Jorna was finishing up an ITC course and hoping to be accepted into the program.

The Bream Bay College graduate attended an Adventure Short Course through school at ITC, where she learnt about the amazing opportunity to study tourism in Northland and wanted to one day work for Disney in Orlando Florida. Mya worked hard to graduate with her tourism and travel qualifications and with the support from ITC, applied for her place at Disney in January 2024.

And now, she’s living out that dream!

We couldn’t wait to hear about her adventures and how it’s all going, so here’s a little more about the program and her time at Disney.

From Study From Home to Weta Workshop to AJ Hackett: Meet the graduate making waves!

Posted on 06/09/2023 by

Annie Shields is a Study From Home graduate working for Weta Workshop and AJ Hackett.

ITC and Study From Home are special education providers for many reasons. One of those reasons is because we care about our students so much that we stay in touch long after they graduate. We love hearing how their careers are going, and we’re always on hand to help them with their job hunts thanks to our Employment Consultants.

Sometimes, we hear from graduates who blow us away with their success. One such graduate is Annie Shields. Annie is working two part-time jobs right now, one for Weta Workshop as a tour guide, and one for AJ Hackett at the Bridge Bungy.

Of course, we had to get in touch and learn more about her amazing journey so far.

Posted on 16/08/2023 by

ITC graduate Freddie Corbett has recently left NZ to start his Disney Exchange Program.

It’s been an exciting year as we have caught up with a number of ITC graduates who went through the Disney Exchange Program. Now, things are about to get even more exciting as we cheer on the students who have been accepted into this year’s August intake.  

We’ve already spoken to Bea Terreblanche, who has already left NZ on her grand Disney adventure. Now we’re excited to announce that her fellow ITC graduate Frederick Corbett has also ventured off to Disney.

Of course, we had to catch up with him to see how he’s feeling about the program! (more…)

ITC graduate and Disney alumni Shania Wheatley shares her wisdom and advice

Posted on 13/07/2023 by

We catch up with graduate and Disney alumni Shania to hear her advice for students looking to follow in her footsteps.

Shania Wheatley is an ITC graduate who moved to Auckland to study with us in 2016 and never looked back.

She landed a job in 2017 and was accepted into the Disney Exchange Program, and like many young graduates in the last few years, the pandemic threw a spanner in the works – but her positive attitude and hard work saw her come out on top.

As we lead up to this year’s Disney Exchange Program, we thought now would be a great time to catch up again and ask about her time with Disney, and if she has any advice for new students.

Catching up with Tobius Charnley: The Disney alumni who is now working in his dream role!

Posted on 28/06/2023 by

We catch up with Tobius Charnley, a Disney alum who landed his dream role.

In 2015, Tobius Charnley won a scholarship to ITC, and later that same year, he was one of just three students to be selected for the Disney Exchange Program.

Tobius clearly had a bright future ahead of him, which is why it was no surprise (but a great cause for celebration!) when he landed his dream role with Air New Zealand.

As we lead up to our August Disney Exchange intake, we thought now would be a great time to touch base with Tobius, see how he’s doing, and find out more about his experiences with the program.

And he got back to us during his down time on a trip to Houston!

Here’s what he had to say, and his advice for students.

Hear from our latest graduate in our ‘Adventures after Disney’ series!

Catching up with student-turned-tutor Laura, who is also a Disney Alumni!

Posted on 07/06/2023 by

Laura Osbourn has had quite the journey, starting as a student, earning a place in the Disney Exchange Program, and now a tutor!

Back in 2018, we spoke to a graduate who had returned to ITC to complete her level 5 Diploma with the intention of joining the Disney Exchange Program.

She made it to Disney, but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works and she had to return to New Zealand – so we interviewed her again in 2020!

However, that wasn’t the end of her story. After many ups and downs and a lot of hard work, Laura Osbourn returned to ITC again, but this time as a tutor.

As we continue with our ongoing ‘Adventures after Disney’ series, we felt it was a great opportunity to interview someone who has not just successfully applied for the Disney Program, but someone who will also be helping current students prepare for their applications as well.

With that said, here’s the latest updates on graduate, Disney alumni, and tutor Laura Osbourn!
