Crown’s governance committee board (GCB) held its inaugural meeting today. Over a fine dining lunch hosted by the Northern Club, Dr. Josephine Do introduced the stellar cast to staff members and then outlined the Institute’s aims and objectives. GCB members listened attentively, occasionally interjecting with clarifying and perceptive questions. Constructive advice flowed generously. From this positive and affirming meeting emerged a list of action points that staff will be working on over the next quarter.
Crown is first-rate in the field of business, hospitality, travel and tourism, and is one of the longest-running tertiary institutes in New Zealand. Having been established since 1972 (that’s 48 years of teaching!) our fundamental principles of providing caring and innovative training have not changed one bit! However, we’re not stuck in the times, either. In fact, we are constantly improving our practices! We keep our courses and teaching methods fresh and relevant through Crown’s strong connection with reputable partners in the industry.
During difficult times such as these, we are all facing an uncertain future and many students’ and workers’ lives have been uprooted by these events and are presently unsure of how to move forward. COVID-19 has had a big impact worldwide and most schools and businesses have had to close or continue their services online from home. Although students are no longer able to attend classes in person, many institutes are making their courses and curriculum available to be completed online from home as well.
Online learning is taking hold around the globe, now more than ever. Students are now able to gain qualifications from the comforts of their own homes. With New Zealand presently in a state of lockdown, we are happy to say that at the Crown Institute of Studies, our usual business, hospitality and travel & tourism courses in Auckland are continuing through online classes, taking place on a daily basis for all our students.
