Why right NOW is a great time to study

Posted on 10/08/2022 by

Now is a fantastic time to study travel and tourism from home.

Have you ever thought about earning a qualification? Or going back to school to start an exciting new career for yourself?

If the thought has ever crossed your mind, there has rarely been a better time to get started and study!

Here’s a little more about why now is the perfect time to study, and how Study From Home can help you earn a qualification from the comfort of your living room.

Why now is the right time to start

“The tourism sector could struggle to meet the lift in demand given the lack of available workers right across the economy, continuing limited access to staff from overseas, and the flow of young Kiwis heading offshore.”

That’s a direct quote from economist Brad Olsen, but not a unique statement in New Zealand right now.

It should come as no surprise that tourism and travel businesses are already short staffed, but we think things will only get worse now that the border is finally open, and that summer is on the horizon.

We’re already seeing this happen in Europe. For example, in Greece, it is said that there is a shortage of 50,000 workers out of the 250,000 needed to staff their hotels. That’s just in one country, in just the hotel industry.

That means, any learner in New Zealand who starts their studies right now will be graduating just in time to have their pick of practically any tourism job in the country. From hotels to airlines to adventure tourism, all areas of the industry are going to be in desperate need of qualified staff.

What will you learn by studying online?

Study From Home allows you to earn a valuable qualification in travel and tourism from the comfort of your own home. You can choose when you study and learn at your own pace, so you can fit it in around any current family or work commitments, and still get qualified.

We offer courses at level 3 as a solid foundation for any work in the travel and tourism industry, or you can consider a level 4 or level 5 course if you are looking to upskill further.

No matter which course you choose, you’ll graduate with a strong basic understanding of the travel and tourism here in New Zealand, with practical skills in communication, documentation, and more.

Whether you’re dreaming of working in a hotel or love the hustle and bustle of airports, it’s likely that by the time you graduate, there will be a number of fantastic jobs available to you – and employers will be more than excited to receive your CV with a qualification from our industry-renowned courses!

Our team helps to make this easier with an Employment Consultant who is on hand to help connect you to industry employers and assist with putting a CV together and going through the interview process. You can learn a little more about this process with our FAQs!

And the best part is, you can enrol and get started at any time. You could even do it today!

Fill out our enrolment form online right now, or get in touch with any questions you may have. We’d love to hear from you!
