Meet the graduate who earned her qualification as a full-time mum!

Posted on 16/08/2023 by

Shereece and her son enjoy a trip to Hawaii in 2019.

Study From Home is one of the most flexible learning options available, which is especially useful for anyone who is busy working full-time jobs, unable to study on campus, or, like Shereece, is a very busy full-time mum.

She managed to find the time to answer a few quick questions from us about her time studying with us!

Why did you choose ITC Study From Home? 

I chose to study with ITC as it was the best choice for me as a full time working mother. And it was convenient for me to be able to do my study whilst working and doing my daily mum duties.

Where do you currently work and what does your job entail? 

I am currently working for the Taranaki Air Ambulance, doing marketing.

Working for the Taranaki Air Ambulance & having a son must be busy, what does your typical routine look like as a busy working/studying mum?

As you can imagine, a working mum’s life is super crazy, so adding studying to the mix for me was beyond what I thought I could do. But thanks to ITC I’ve been able to do it all.

Do you have any words of wisdom for other mums out there wondering if they should Study From Home?

If it’s definitely something you want to do, then you need to do it. As mums our lives are built around our kids, and we use that as an excuse to forget about what we want. But studying from home is perfect for you, I’ve been able to work it around my already hectic life without being up all night having to do it. So all you mums sitting on the fence, now’s the time to do something for you.

What are your career aspirations or what are you excited about using these qualifications for in future?

I’m looking forward to the day I get to make use of my study, and work in the travel industry.

Want to study around your busy lifestyle?

For Shereece, the challenge was to study while being a full-time mum. For others, it might be that you’re caring for other family members, or that you’re committed to a full-time job. Or perhaps you’re simply based outside of a main centre so can’t attend campus.

Whatever the reason, Study From Home makes it possible to earn a valuable qualification in travel and tourism even when you have other commitments. You can study with us full-time or part-time, and you can do it all from the comfort of your own home whenever it suits your schedule.

If you’re unsure if this form of study is right for you, you can do a FREE trial to see exactly what it would be like to log on and complete your coursework. And keep in mind, you’ll also be fully supported by our friendly and knowledgeable team of tutors, who will always be around to answer your questions and encourage you on your learning journey.

Plus, our Employment Consultants are also on hand to help you find a job in the industry!

Is Study From Home right for you?

Posted on 28/04/2021 by

Not sure if Study From Home is right for you? Here’s how you can find out!

Study From Home is a fantastic option for earning a qualification in travel and tourism from home.

Our distance learning courses offer qualifications at level three, four, and five, and are recognised here in New Zealand and around the world. For many students, studying with us is covered under the Fees Free Initiative, and even better, students can enrol and start learning at any point during the year – there are no fixed start dates!

All that said, it can still be hard to tell if a college is right for you specifically. So we’ve compiled a list of the kinds of people who get the most out of our online platform and incredible courses.

Do you see yourself in this list?

You’re interested in travel and tourism

Do you love watching people setting off on a travel adventure and wondering what they are going to do? Are you the person in your friend group who’s always planning trips and finding the best places to visit? Do you love the hustle and bustle of a busy hotel with people coming and going from all walks of life?

A natural interest in travel in tourism is all you need to get started in an industry you’ll love. It’s one thing to watch it from the outside, but it’s truly something else to get up and spend every day working in such an exciting industry.

Are you working but looking to upskill or switch careers?

Study From Home is perfect for those who are already working and can’t take the time off to go back to college full time.

With our courses, you can study part time during your evenings and weekends. We offer a huge amount of flexibility with our qualifications, so you can maintain your regular job while earning a valuable skillset on the side that will help you make your next career move.

Do you want to spend your time travelling instead of studying?

Why not both?

We totally understand that passion for travel, and the desire to explore before doing anything else. But we also know that you can earn a qualification or two in the travel industry while you’re travelling. Just check out our recent interview with a graduate who did exactly that.

The Study From Home courses allow you to study anywhere at any time, so you can definitely tick off that travel bucket list while you work towards a qualification.

You want to study but can’t move cities

New Zealand has plenty of fantastic colleges and universities, but they largely based in cities and towns, which isn’t always easy if you can’t (or don’t want to!) move to study.

When you choose Study From Home, you don’t even need to leave your living room to earn your qualification. Make yourself comfortable in your home office, on the couch, or even in bed, and study wherever suits you best.

Save your money on travelling to and from college or paying rent to study in a major city, and instead use it to go on an adventure, discover our beautiful country and gain qualifications all at the same time!

You’re looking to get back into the workforce

Due to illness, injury, having kids, or any of the other things that can pop up in life, many people take a break from the workforce. You don’t need to have to explain your situation with Study From Home, you just need to get your work done at your own pace.

If you don’t know where to start in getting back into the swing of things, earning a qualification at home can be the perfect place to begin. This will set you up with skills and knowledge to work in countless roles around New Zealand.

Do you tick one of these boxes?

People enrol at Study From Home for all sorts of reasons. Whether you see yourself in the list above or have your own reason, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch today to find out more, enrol, and get started!
