ITC’s Tourism Education Team is hitting the road in 2016! Led by Mel Fey (bottom left), the team is bringing tourism short courses to ten regions around New Zealand.

The International Travel College (ITC) may be headquartered in Auckland, but we do our best to make tourism education available to students throughout New Zealand. Thanks to our Study From Home option, you can enrol on an ITC airline, travel or tourism course from anywhere in the country.

To spread the word about our exciting courses, ITC’s Tourism Education Team is hitting the road in 2016. This year they are visiting the following ten destinations throughout New Zealand:

  • Paihia
  • Whangarei
  • Tauranga
  • Rotorua
  • Taranaki
  • Wairarapa
  • Wellington
  • Nelson
  • Christchurch
  • Queenstown

 
The purpose of this New Zealand-wide tour is to offer secondary school students the chance to experience a taste of the tourism industry before they graduate.

If you are currently at high school, are interested in travel and tourism, then this is your opportunity to learn all about this exciting industry and gain some credits at the same time!

The Tourism Education Team will be delivering a range of short courses for NCEA Level 2 and 3 covering topics such as Flight Attending, Adventure Tourism and Tour Guiding. Courses range from 1 to 5 days in length.

ITC Tourism Education Team Leader Mel Fey said she’s looking forward to meeting students from all over the country.

“Last year’s short courses were so popular we decided to visit even more regions in 2016. Students will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the tourism industry and gain experience like no other,” Mel said.

“I can’t wait to inspire, motivate and educate students – it’s amazing how much they walk away with after one short course.”

I want to attend an ITC short course – how do I enrol?

If you are keen to attend an ITC short course, you need to talk to your tourism teacher at school or ask your careers advisor for more information. They will let you know if you are eligible to take part.
