Crown Institute recognises the importance of learning outside of the classroom and as part of the program of field trips and guest speakers; we offer the opportunity for students to take part in an optional educational experience overseas.

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 Air Pacific and the destination transport and activities are with Feejee Experience.

Students hoping to work in the hotel, travel and tourism industry will benefit from an exciting tourism and travel experience. Most industry organisations require their staff to have knowledge of overseas operations and the South West Pacific is a top destination for New Zealand travellers. So, where better to gain experience and develop knowledge than at the destination itself.  Students will have the opportunity to develop their industry knowledge first hand, by experiencing a range of transport, accommodation, attractions and activities overseas and gain valuable skills working with others, researching destinations and selling.  They will enjoy the chance to experience different sights, cultures and activities to build their confidence and knowledge of the exciting hospitality, travel and tourism industry.

Places are still available on Crown Institutes Travel, Tourism, Hotel and Hospitality courses starting 25 March 2013.  Click HERE to complete an enrolment form or freephone the recruitment team on 0800 357 316.

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.
