Highlights from Orientation DayPosted on 09/09/2015 by Jess O'Connor
Did you know all of our courses include an Orientation Day in Auckland? Held at one of our fabulous campuses, this compulsory, full-day workshop is an excellent opportunity for you to get to know your tutors and fellow classmates.
The most recent Orientation Day was in August and held at the ITC City Campus. Our students travelled to Auckland from all around New Zealand to attend this valuable workshop. We promise it’s worth the journey – in fact, according to Study From Home Team Leader Carla Sutton, Orientation Day is often the key to ensuring every student gets off to a flying start.
“Studying from home can be a little lonely, and it makes a huge difference if you have met and got to know other people who are doing the course at the same time,” Carla said.
“Not to mention you also get to meet your supportive tutors! We love meeting our students. All courses have dedicated, supportive tutors who want to see you have fun, do well and achieve the qualification.”
We understand it’s not always easy for everyone to take time out of their schedule to travel to Auckland, so we try to pack as much information as we can into one fun day. You’ll walk away with everything you need to know about the course ahead, including study tips and advice.
“We will equip you with all the necessary tools. You will learn about the resources available to you, the support we offer, and the strategies you can apply if you hit a speed bump,” Carla said.
Oh and did we mention you will also gain some credits? The workshop includes a small assessment, so by the end of the day you will have achieved your very first credits for the course.
It’s a busy day, but we try to make it as fun and interesting as possible. Judging by the feedback we get after each workshop, we know it has a positive impact on our students.
Here’s a sampling of some of the feedback we received from our August Orientation Day:
“Thank you for today. It was a gift to meet you, and you are fantastic tutors.”
“I really enjoyed the practical activities. They are fun & challenging, and you get to know others in the class.”
“It was great to come together as a team. I loved everyone’s input and keenness.”
“It was good to realise everyone is in the same boat, juggling different things, and knowing that the ITC tutors are there if I need help.”
“The atmosphere in the room was very kind, friendly and welcoming, and I enjoyed it very much.”
