Written by Amy Tregidga on April 15th, 2013.      0 comments

Second year Crown Institute student Cracencia Josephmary is this year’s New Caledonia Tourism Scholarship winner. 
 
After last year completing a Certificate Course which included Tourism Core Skills and Travel Level 3 & 4 National Certificates, Cracencia is working towards her Level 5 Tourism Management Diploma. Winning this scholarship and having the opportunity to work with Simon Duffy and his team at New Caledonia Tourism will give her an inside into the Tourism industry at ground level and will equip her with the skills she needs to develop in achieving her ultimate goal of working as a Customer Service Agent.
 
Head of School Travel, Tourism, Hospitality and Business at Crown Institute of Studies, Leanne Annabell is delighted at the high calibre of students applying for the scholarship. “I am so happy for  Cracencia she is a very deserving student,  but it is also really hard to see those who miss out. It is an enormous opportunity for them to be involved in a National Tourism office like New Caledonia and to have some of their tertiary fees subsidised is huge for them and their families” said Leanne Annabell. 
 
Cracencia was chosen from a group of eight of her classmates and is the fifth recipient of this inaugural scholarship.
 
“It is always good to be able to put something back into the industry and to be able to work closely with a significant industry partner like Crown Institute of Studies” says General Manager Simon Duffy. “These young people are the tour operators, travel agents, customer service staff, hotel managers and potential NTO General Managers of the future so it is important that they are well nurtured by the industry during their studies. Cracencia is enthusiastic and passionate and we look forward to having her with us this year”.
 
Cracencia will work closely with New Caledonia Tourism attending various trade events, industry shows and be based in the offices in Parnell one day a week.

Crown travel and hospitality students opportunity to visit Fiji!

Written by Amy Tregidga on March 14th, 2013.      0 comments

 
Crown Institute recognises the importance of learning outside of the classroom and as part of the program of field trips and guest speakers; we offer the opportunity for students to take part in an optional educational experience overseas.

The trip is offered to students studying Travel, Tourism, Hotel and Hospitality courses at Crown Institute.  This year students will be travelling to Viti Levu Island, Fiji for six days in August. The trip will be arranged through STA travel. Flights are with Air Pacific and the destination transport and activities are with Feejee Experience.

Students hoping to work in the hotel, travel and tourism industry will benefit from an exciting tourism and travel experience. Most industry organisations require their staff to have knowledge of overseas operations and the South West Pacific is a top destination for New Zealand travellers. So, where better to gain experience and develop knowledge than at the destination itself.  Students will have the opportunity to develop their industry knowledge first hand, by experiencing a range of transport, accommodation, attractions and activities overseas and gain valuable skills working with others, researching destinations and selling.  They will enjoy the chance to experience different sights, cultures and activities to build their confidence and knowledge of the exciting hospitality, travel and tourism industry.

Places are still available on Crown Institutes Travel, Tourism, Hotel and Hospitality courses starting 25 March 2013.  Click HERE to complete an enrolment form or freephone the recruitment team on 0800 357 316.
