Crown working closely with the travel industry
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.
