To find out more about this exciting qualification, we spoke with head tutor Ali Rigby. Here’s what she had to say about this course.
What is your favourite part of the course?
I love the Cruise and Coach & Overland topics. You learn all about the ins and outs of how each industry works. There’s also a research element which gives students a great opportunity to see what’s out there. By the end of these topics, you will feel really motivated to travel and experience it all for yourself.
What types of jobs could the NZ Certificate in Travel Level 4 lead to?
Jobs with airlines, hotels, travel agencies, wholesalers, adventure tourism… the sky’s the limit! The Level 4 qualification is a step above the Level 3 which means it will be favoured by most employers, especially if you also have some customer service experience. There is a huge range of jobs out there and I think the Level 4 course helps students figure out their career direction as you learn about each sector in-depth.
What advice would you give to students starting the course?
Stay motivated and stay on track with your study plan. Keep reminding yourself of the goals you want to achieve upon completing the course. Definitely use the tutors (that’s what we’re here for!) and fellow students for support. As you don’t have the classroom environment, it’s very important to reach out and communicate. Lastly – enjoy it, you’re already on the road to an exciting new career!
