Crown Institute student Beatrice Nyberg is this year’s New Caledonia Tourism Scholarship winner.
Beatrice is originally from Sweden and is currently studying the Crown Certificate in International Travel, Tourism & Airline Studies. She was chosen from a group of eight of her classmates and is the sixth recipient of this inaugural scholarship.
"I am extremely happy to be given the opportunity to get an insight of this part of the tourism industry. The experience and knowledge I will gain from it is incredibly valuable and is something I will bring with me to any future job opportunities." Beatrice says.
Beatrice 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.
Winning this scholarship and working with Simon Duffy and his team at New Caledonia Tourism will give her an introduction into the Tourism industry at ground level. It will also contribute to the skills she needs to develop in order to achieve her ultimate goal of working as a Customer Service Agent.
“These students are the future tourism industry employees. It is important that they have hands on experience during their studies” says General Manager Simon Duffy. “Working closely with a significant industry partner like Crown Institute of Studies allows us to help prepare these students while at the same time gives us the opportunity to give something back to the industry”
