Tourism, Aviation experience & credits in your town

At ITC we take pride in delivering short courses to help students get inspired about Tourism & Aviation and educate them on the role and reality of the exciting opportunities the industry has to offer.  We work with local industry and as an added benefit students earn credits towards NCEA.  These courses are suitable for any students in year 12 or 13.

Just a few areas we cover on these courses are Flight Attending, Adventure Tourism, Tour Guiding & Leadership, Maori Tourism and much more.  These courses have had a significant impact on our students who attend and they walk away with inspiration to work towards their career goals.  They are delivered by experts who have worked in the industry themselves.

Below are the destinations we have scheduled courses.  Click on the destination for outlines, cost and dates:

You do not require to book a minimum number of students.  We make up these numbers with other schools in your region.  We suggest you secure places in advance due to the popularity of these courses and to avoid disappointment. To make a booking or enquiry please email esther@itc.co.nz

Don’t panic if your destination is not in the above list.  We can run these nationwide and will happily schedule a date to advertise in your town if we can reach a minimum of 12 students. For more information of everything we do to support Gateway, Resources and more please click here.

Secret of getting an Interview …

Secret of getting an Interview … don’t hide references!

References and testimonials increase the chances of a resume being read. A statement from another person carries more weight that what you say about yourself.

Rather than writing “references available on request” create a reference heading and add a snippet from each referee so employers can read what others say about you when they’re reading your resume.

We live in an endorsement driven society where recommendations of others influence what we buy, view or listen to. Example,

  • “Jenny is an excellent student who has leadership qualities” Joan B. Year 12 Teacher.
  • “A keen footballer, John works hard staying fit, never misses training and gets on well with team mates.” Bill S. Football Coach
