Crown work­ing closely with the travel in­dus­try

Central Leader - - News -

Crown In­sti­tute of Stud­ies has been Auck­land’s lead­ing travel, tourism, busi­ness and hos­pi­tal­ity train­ing col­lege for over 36 years. Each year hun­dreds of stu­dents grad­u­ate from their cour­ses and turn their goals into re­al­ity.

When you study at Crown, the world gets smaller and your cir­cle of friends gets larger. You can meet peo­ple from around the cor­ner or the other side of the world. And in to­day’s world of travel, busi­ness, man­age­ment and hos­pi­tal­ity - your class­mate to­day is your in­ter­na­tional busi­ness con­tact to­mor­row.

Crown works closely with travel, tourism, busi­ness and hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­tries and has ex­cel­lent ad­vi­sory com­mit­tees, made up of lead­ing in­dus­try com­pa­nies that en­sure your course is in­dus­try rel­e­vant and upto-date.

Crown has a wide range of in­dus­try pro­grammes on of­fer that are recog­nised in­ter­na­tion­ally such as the Mar­riott Ho­tel Ex­cel­lence Cer­tifi­cate, Cruise In- dus­try and Sales Cer­tifi­cate, Con­tiki Course and Cer­tifi­cate, Hong Kong Spe­cial­ist Pro­gramme, Hawaii Tourism Kuhina Pro­gramme and Tiare Tahiti Spe­cial­ist Pro­gramme.

One of the most re­cent ad­di­tions to the in­dus­try pro­gramme is the CabinCrewDirect Diploma. CabinCrewDirect is the lead­ing on­line course de­signed for peo­ple who want to be­come cabin crew or flight at­ten­dants.

It is the only course de­signed in as­so­ci­a­tion with lead­ing air­lines like Emi­rates, Easy Jet and bmibaby.

Cabincrewdirect stu­dents had fun learn­ing about the role of a flight at­ten­dant which con­sisted of 18 sep­a­rate mod­ules. They then ap­plied their prac­ti­cal train­ing in Crown’s very own sim­u­lated air­craft on the last day of the pro­gramme.

Crown Travel and Tourism stu­dent An­thony Read re­cently won a schol­ar­ship, pre­sented to him by Vir­ginia Hales from New Cale­do­nia Tourism.

The schol­ar­ship will pro­vide An­thony with an op­por­tu­nity to un­der­take work ex­pe­ri­ence for two to four hours per week at the New Cale­do­nia Tourism of­fice in Auck­land.

An­thony will also re­ceive $1000 to­wards his stud­ies, on com­ple­tion of his Travel and Tourism course and pos­si­bly an over­seas “ed­u­ca­tional trip” to New Cale­do­nia later in the year.

Well done An­thony and thanks to New Cale­do­nia for pro­vid­ing Crown stu­dents with this won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity!

Sa­man­tha Conn, an­other Crown Travel and Tourism stu­dent has been ac­cepted into GO Hol­i­day’s “work ex­pe­ri­ence pro­gramme”.

Sa­man­tha will be given the chance to work within var­i­ous de­part­ments at Go Hol­i­days for a week to gain an over­view of this large whole­sale travel com­pany.

Thanks to Carmel Lee, Hol­i­day Travel’s train­ing man­ager, for ar­rang­ing this fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for Sa­man­tha.
