ITC 2013 Scholarship Winner Announced

ITC 2013 Scholarship Winner Announced

Avondale College student Brianna Lane has been awarded the International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC) 2013 scholarship.

The social-media-based competition had many strong entries, but ITC’s Account Manager Ceri Jenkins said that Brianna’s stood out.

“Brianna’s video displayed a great level of understanding of what the travel and tourism industry is all about. She spoke passionately about the sense of adventure that travel affords people and its ability to change the way people perceive the world.”

“She also showed a real seriousness and dedication to her studies and a determination to achieve her goals.”

In her video entry Brianna says that her long-term goal is to work with a travel wholesaler.

She says that study at ITC “has been a dream goal for me since I took geography and travel and tourism at high school.”

Brianna’s scholarship will pay for the full cost of the Level 3 Certificate in Travel and Tourism ($5150). From there she will go on to the Level 4 Certificate in International Travel and Tourism.

Brianna says she is “thankful and very overwhelmed” to have received the scholarship. She is excited about studying at ITC and says she chose the college because “It will help open up doors for me, give me the opportunity to work hands on with real people from travel companies, and give me the qualifications I need to work in the great industry that is travel and tourism.”

“We have no doubt that Brianna will achieve her goals,” says Ceri. “She says in her video that she wants to prove to herself and others that with hard work and determination anything is possible if you put your mind to it.”

“That’s just so in line with ITC’s approach. We provide so many opportunities for our students, and it is the ones who reach out and grab them with both hands and really apply themselves who get the most out of their studies.”

“We’re absolutely delighted to have Brianna on board.”
