Dynamic Training - Crown Innovates to Ensure Graduate Success

Written by Natalie Tolhopf on May 22nd, 2013.      0 comments

Everyone loves good news, and we get especially excited when we hear about our graduates landing jobs in travel or hospitality establishments or other exciting businesses!
Starting from their first day on the job, we take pride in our graduates and their individual career journey. Whether it’s a foot in the door to gain customer service, turning their diploma into a degree or their dream role as a flight attendant; our philosophy is to never lose sight of helping our students succeed.
Recent Crown graduates are now working at The Langham, SkyCity, Mercure Hotel, Sofitel, STA Travel, Hawaiian Airlines, Novotel, Waterfront Restaurant, Function Staff and many other great employers!
Our graduates are a diverse group who each offer their own unique combination of skills, attributes, achievements and work experience; but they have in common a qualification from Crown!
To ensure that our courses are delivering the essential industry elements, we track our graduates. Our Head of School, Leanne Annabell, tracks employers to gain feedback on the work readiness of our graduates. This continuous improvement ensures we remain focused on outcomes. We’re committed to a system of continual adaptation and improvement in our programme delivery to keep up with the dynamic needs of the employment market.
As a result of graduate and employer feedback, the following changes to our courses have been made:
·      The development of a six-week internship for our hotel students.
·      Café experience for travel students to gain cash handling and customer service skills.
·      Working with leading hospitality group Showcase Hospitality to train and run interview workshops for their managers and our students.
These are just some of the innovative ways we are looking at helping our graduates stand out from the crowd.
At Crown, our style is personal and friendly, and we aim to get to know you, to support you and to help you succeed.

How we help pave our students way to success!

It’s always fantastic for us to hear about our graduates’ successes! Check out what a couple of our graduates have to say about Crown and how we helped them pave their way to success.

Nikita Gillard - Sales Consultant

I absolutely love Crown! They have taught me so much about what I do in my current job. The role-plays are what helped me the most.

The Crown Certificate in International Travel, Tourism and Airline Studies is a course I would highly recommend. I have learnt some amazing skills from my experience at Crown. I have made lifelong friends that I still contact even a year after finishing my course.
I have friends who attended two other travel colleges and they felt let down by their experience and felt like it was a waste of money. I have never felt that about Crown.

The tutors are awesome, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable in what they teach. I 100% recommend this course to anyone who wants to study Travel and Tourism.

Zaynah Begum - Food and Beverage Attendant, Sky City Convention Centre

Thanks to Crown, I have managed to excel in my role as a Food and Beverage Attendant at Sky City Convention Centre! Crown taught me everything I ever needed to know about the hospitality industry!

I would recommend that anyone who wants to gain knowledge about hospitality or is interested to learn about the dynamics of food and beverage to join Crown!
