Harriet jumps for joy!

The International Travel College (ITC) offers a unique opportunity for our students to undertake work experience with a travel and tourism provider. The advantages are obvious! The students get to experience the industry first hand, understand how a travel/tourism provider works, get to know about the job roles on offer and have the inside running for future jobs.

Harriet Kelsall has already had a great chance to learn more about the industry during her work experience. She chose Sky Jump in Auckland as where she would like to learn more about working in adventure tourism. “I wanted to experience something fun, I have always wanted to be a flight attendant but realise there are hundreds more options that I hadn’t even considered before.” she said. “I loved it, I got to do the Sky Jump over 30 times, it was such an awesome experience. It has really made me see all the options that I have when I finish my course.”

How does the work experience help ITC students? Well, like Harriett it allows the students to experience what it is really like to work in this fun and exciting industry. Students get the chance to choose the area they are interested in and ITC also helps ensure that students and employers are well matched. “It’s a great programme for helping students see what kind of great jobs are out there,” said Ceri Jenkins, (ITC Sales Executive) responsible for introducing this scheme. “We have excellent feedback from everyone involved. A sure sign that is a valuable part of our courses” he said.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students at ITC to learn more about the industry and sort out those career options!

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.
