The school year has begun – but are you in the right place?

Posted on 11/02/2021 by

Does your classroom look like this? If school isn’t the right place for you this year, ITC could be!

High schools throughout New Zealand are well underway with the new school year. It’s an exciting time as countless students begin their final year or two of secondary education and start thinking about the future.

However, there are almost certainly students out there who can’t help but feel like they’re just not in the right place. Whether they’ve never taken to the school system or simply have no interest in the subjects, it can be an awful and uncomfortable feeling of wasting time in one place when you could be somewhere else.

Sound familiar? (more…)

What will you say when future employers ask what you did in 2021?

Posted on 09/02/2021 by

Future employers will surely ask how you spent 2021. Do you know how you will answer?

It’s one of the most common questions in any interview, and you can almost guarantee that you’ll be asked it.

It’s the question that will always come up when there are gaps in your CV. Be it the time between high school and your first job, or even in between jobs. Employers will always want to know how you spent your time – and what that says about you.

In 2021, with so many people feeling unsure of what to do next, there might be quite a few gaps in resumes in the works. So how will you answer the question? (more…)

Thinking of taking a gap year? Why not take it at ITC?

Posted on 16/12/2020 by

Thinking of taking a gap year in 2021? Why not take it at ITC?

The year 2020 was strange, difficult, and confusing. It’s no wonder than many young adults are feeling burnt out and unsure of what to do next.

In fact, we’ve heard that many students leaving school are thinking of taking a gap year while they figure out what to do. A gap year, but definition, is simply something that you do in between life stages.

That could be work, travel, or even – study. (more…)

ITC moves to a four-day study week in 2021

Posted on 09/12/2020 by

In 2021, ITC will be moving to a four-day study week for better study-life balance and well-being for our students.

In 2021, ITC will be moving to a four-day study week. This means students will only need to be on campus for classes from Monday to Thursday.

Not only that, we have changed our study hours. In 2021, classes will run from 9am until 2.30pm Monday to Thursday (they used to be from 8am to noon, and 1pm to 5pm).

We’ve made this decision based on a number of factors, and we believe all of them mean less stress, more health, and a better balance for our students. (more…)

Meet graduate Laura Orsbourn: From ITC to Disney to New Zealand lockdown

Posted on 05/11/2020 by

Laura Orsbourn studied at ITC with a dream of working at Disney, but not long after she landed her dream job, covid-19 threw her plans into disarray.

“ITC is like a real family. When you move away from home (or graduate from ITC), it doesn’t mean you are not able to ever come back. In fact, students come back years after they graduate to say hi, get further career support and guidance and even re-employment. That’s our promise to our graduates,” Mel Jenkins, Marketing Manager at ITC.

ITC is as much a college for those wishing to enter the travel, tourism, and aviation industries, as it is a supportive family. As Mel speaks about in her quote above, graduation from ITC doesn’t mean the support, advice, and communication stops.

In fact, we recently caught up with graduate Laura Orsbourn, who studied at ITC in order to apply for the Disney College program in the US. Her hard work and skills landed her the job, but it wasn’t long before covid derailed her role and saw her packing her bags for New Zealand.

We chatted to Laura about how she got started, what it was like heading home, and her time at ITC. (more…)

Here’s a little more about the Fees Free initiative, who’s eligible, what you can study at ITC without paying a cent, and how to apply. (more…)
