Crown Institute recognises the importance of learning outside of the classroom and as part of the programme of field trips and guest speakers we offer the opportunity for students to take part in many educational experiences, including a trip to Fiji!
Most industry organisations require their staff to have knowledge of local operations. So, where better to gain experience and develop knowledge than at some of Auckland’s amazing events? Students have the opportunity to develop their industry knowledge first hand, by experiencing a range of transport, accommodation, attractions and activities and gain valuable skills working with others, researching destinations and selling. They enjoy the chance to experience different sights, cultures and activities to build their confidence and knowledge of the exciting hospitality, travel and tourism industries.
Recently, some of Crown's Hospitality and Travel, Tourism & Airline Studies students spent a morning at ASB Polyfest. They had a great time visiting the stalls and watching some of the amazing performances!
Another group of students from the Travel & Tourism 2A/3A class visited Piha. Their first stop was the Arataki Visitor Centre to take in the stunning Waitakere scenery. They, they continued to the beautiful Kitekite falls for a swim.
Following that, they spent time relaxing at Piha Beach before enjoying traditional fish and chips. Thank you to Stray New Zealand for organising a great day out for the students. It was an excellent way for the students to finish one of their level 4 marketing unit standards.
Fiji is one of the most popular destinations visited by New Zealanders on holiday, so it’s a great place to take our current travel and tourism students on an international cultural educational experience. Students will soon be jetting across to Fiji to experience an overseas trip and a little of the Fijian way of life. Students hoping to work in the hotel or travel and tourism industries will benefit from an exciting travel experience.
The trip is offered to students studying Travel, Tourism, Hotel and Hospitality courses at Crown Institute. This year, students will be travelling to Viti Levu Island, Fiji for six days in August. The trip will be arranged through STA Travel. Flights are with Fiji Airways and the destination transport and activities are with Feejee Experience.
Places are still available on Crown Institutes Travel, Tourism, Hotel and Hospitality courses starting 24 March 2014. Click HERE to complete an enrolment form or freephone the recruitment team on 0800 357 316.
