ITC launches new tourism courses for current high school students!

Posted on 03/04/2024 by

Some students on our upcoming Experience will get to do the famous Auckland Harbour Bridge Climb!

Yet if your high school doesn’t offer these courses, ITC can help. We’ve just launched three new courses available for high school students. These courses all offer credits at level 3, and can all be completed during normal school time at our Botany Campus.

Here’s a little more about each one!

ITC Schools Team announces plans for 2024

Posted on 01/11/2023 by

Our fabulous ITC Schools Team.

The International Travel College is one of New Zealand’s most well-regarded providers of travel and tourism education at the tertiary level. We are committed to supporting and improving travel and tourism education across the country at all levels.

That’s why we created ITC in Schools, a pathway for high schools to offer our education resources at NCEA levels 2 and 3. This provides a fantastic option for schools to offer a more diverse education, and a way for students to learn about the exciting possibilities of a career in travel and tourism.

Now that 2024 is just on the horizon, the ITC Schools Team has announced plans for the coming year. Here’s everything we’re looking forward to in the New Year!

ITC Schools Team delivers two Flight Attending short courses in Napier

Posted on 12/07/2023 by

Our Napier Flight Attending short courses were a huge hit for students.

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.

Posted on 25/10/2022 by

ITC’s Business of Tourism Academies offer high school students the chance to begin their travel and tourism studies early, and to earn 30 credits at level 3.

One of the great things about ITC is that we don’t just offer tourism and travel credits for those who have finished high school. In fact, our Business of Tourism Academy offers Year 12 and 13 students in Auckland and Whangarei the chance to earn up to 30 level 3 credits throughout their school year.

And the best part is, we’ll be offering FIVE opportunities to join our Business of Tourism Academy in 2023.

ITC Short Course team creates Eco Tourism program

Posted on 31/08/2021 by

An ITC Short Course guides students to create and execute sustainable ideas for their local communities.

When the pandemic put New Zealand tourism on pause in 2020, many New Zealanders and industry groups urged that we as a country take the opportunity to make the industry more eco-friendly.

The ‘Not 100% – but four steps closer to sustainable tourism’ report released in early 2021 was just one submission outlining ways we could improve how environmentally friendly our industry could be.

Additionally, the 2021 Sustainable Travel Report by Booking.com found that 77% of Kiwi travellers think sustainable travel is vital. 

At ITC, we also believe tourism can and should be more sustainable, which is why our short course team has recently created a new course dedicated to Eco Tourism. (more…)

ITC teams up with Education Industry Solutions to help Gateway students and high schools across New Zealand

Posted on 11/03/2021 by

ITC has been working with Education Industry Solutions to offer support for students in gateway programmes around New Zealand.

The International Travel College (ITC) is most well-known for our level 3, 4, and 5 courses that offer qualifications in the tourism, travel, and aviation industries. However, our dedication to education, students, and the industry goes far beyond tertiary qualifications.

In fact, ITC has been working closely with Education Industry Solutions (EIS), a local group that facilitates gateway programmes for high schools all over New Zealand.

Here’s a little more on what EIS does, how we’ve been involved to help schools and students, and how ITC’s contributions have made a big difference for the team at EIS. (more…)
