At Crown we understand the importance of our students gaining valuable work experience. Real skills and experience give you employability and are essential for even an entry-level role in the hospitality industry!
Graduates from Crown who have had some work experience are more successful in finding jobs in their chosen industry, as they have been exposed to the working world while studying.
Three of Crown's Travel, Tourism & Airline Studies Certificate students had the great opportunity to help the lovely people at Discover America at their event at SkyCity last week. Their main role at the event was to meet and greet travel agents and direct them to their seats. Eunice Heywood Almario, Venus Hertz Alviola and Reece Main only started their course at Crown on 3 February 2014 and have been able to network with industry people already!
The recent NRL Auckland Nines competition was another opportunity for Crown students to gain valuable paid work experience with Function Staff. Students worked in various roles at Eden Park from Corporate Box Hosts to Duty Managers.  In fact seven of Crown’s current students and recent graduates were Duty Managers at the event!
This weekend, approximately ten students will be working at Mt Smart Stadium for the Bruce Springsteen concert!

Governance Committee Board Meeting

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.
