YoungTEC and the NZ School of Tourism announce partnership


The Young Tourism Export Council (YoungTEC) and New Zealand School of Tourism are excited to announce the formalisation of their partnership, working together towards a shared goal of inspiring, guiding and mentoring young people that have decided to pursue a career in tourism.

This partnership will see YoungTEC members and New Zealand School of Tourism students come together to share their first-hand experience working within the tourism industry, highlighting the various career opportunities available to students as they join the work force.

Tourism Export Council of New Zealand Chief Executive Judy Chen says

“The formalisation of this partnership shows the value that both YoungTEC and the NZ School of Tourism place on this relationship. By working together, we hope to support and upskill more young people in tourism.”

The New Zealand School of Tourism continue to show their support by becoming YoungTEC’s 2018/19 Regional Event Partner.

New Zealand School of Tourism Stakeholder Development Manager Bronwen Wilkinson says

“We see our partnership with YoungTEC based on professional respect, mutual alignments and common goals. Our students have much to gain from the guiding and mentoring YoungTEC members will provide. Our reason for being is our students and we value the fact the YoungTEC members want to be part of their journey to pursuing careers in the Tourism Industry.”

Regional speed dating events between YoungTEC members and students will be held in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, supported by the creation of a mentorship programme providing one-on-one insight and advice.

YoungTEC’s Chair Nicole Botting says this partnership is highly valued by its members.

“Our members have always enjoyed the opportunity to meet with New Zealand School of Tourism students, sharing their experience and providing real examples of the vastly different career paths we have all taken”.

The speed dating events will kick off in September closely followed by the implementation of the mentorship programme.

ENDS.
