Cooking with CelebritiesAt Crown Institute, our students are getting that ‘real world’ experience that employers are asking for, while they are studying. Jasmin Thienel (pictured with Peter Gordon), is one of our Travel and Tourism students and has recently secured herself a position at the award-winning restaurant Dine by Peter Gordon located in the Skycity Grand Hotel. By taking up this fantastic opportunity, she has not only met renowned celebrity chef, Peter Gordon, the man behind the restaurant, she is acquiring key skills and knowledge at a respected establishment. She will also have a definite advantage upon completing her qualification, especially when compared to someone with no work experience, and be more confident when moving on to the next stage of her career.

Crown encourages all of our students to find part-time work while they are studying. Many of our students gain valuable work experience organised by Crown during their time here and a lot of our Hospitality students work with Function Staff and build on the knowledge they develop in the classroom. Entry-level positions in retail or customer service are generally suitable for students who just need a bit of experience to give them the skills and confidence needed in today’s workforce. Our Careers Advisor works with our students and graduates to get them ready for all stages of the employment process, from CVs and cover letters, to interview preparation and job applications.

If you want to be work-ready before you graduate, enrol in a course at Crown for 2013! With our Travel and Tourism, Hospitality and Business courses starting soon, your employment options are endless! Phone 0800 357 316 or email info@crown.ac.nz.

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.

How Crown is Different to Other Schools

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.
