2013 New Caledonia Scholarship Winner – Cracencia Josephmary

Second year Crown Institute student Cracencia Josephmary is this year’s New Caledonia Tourism Scholarship winner. 
After last year completing a Certificate Course which included Tourism Core Skills and Travel Level 3 & 4 National Certificates, Cracencia is working towards her Level 5 Tourism Management Diploma. Winning this scholarship and having the opportunity to work with Simon Duffy and his team at New Caledonia Tourism will give her an inside into the Tourism industry at ground level and will equip her with the skills she needs to develop in achieving her ultimate goal of working as a Customer Service Agent.
Head of School Travel, Tourism, Hospitality and Business at Crown Institute of Studies, Leanne Annabell is delighted at the high calibre of students applying for the scholarship. “I am so happy for  Cracencia she is a very deserving student,  but it is also really hard to see those who miss out. It is an enormous opportunity for them to be involved in a National Tourism office like New Caledonia and to have some of their tertiary fees subsidised is huge for them and their families” said Leanne Annabell. 
Cracencia was chosen from a group of eight of her classmates and is the fifth recipient of this inaugural scholarship.
“It is always good to be able to put something back into the industry and to be able to work closely with a significant industry partner like Crown Institute of Studies” says General Manager Simon Duffy. “These young people are the tour operators, travel agents, customer service staff, hotel managers and potential NTO General Managers of the future so it is important that they are well nurtured by the industry during their studies. Cracencia is enthusiastic and passionate and we look forward to having her with us this year”.
Cracencia will work closely with New Caledonia Tourism attending various trade events, industry shows and be based in the offices in Parnell one day a week.

How we help pave our students way to success!

It’s always fantastic for us to hear about our graduates’ successes! Check out what a couple of our graduates have to say about Crown and how we helped them pave their way to success.

Nikita Gillard – Sales Consultant

I absolutely love Crown! They have taught me so much about what I do in my current job. The role-plays are what helped me the most.

The Crown Certificate in International Travel, Tourism and Airline Studies is a course I would highly recommend. I have learnt some amazing skills from my experience at Crown. I have made lifelong friends that I still contact even a year after finishing my course.
I have friends who attended two other travel colleges and they felt let down by their experience and felt like it was a waste of money. I have never felt that about Crown.

The tutors are awesome, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable in what they teach. I 100% recommend this course to anyone who wants to study Travel and Tourism.

Zaynah Begum – Food and Beverage Attendant, Sky City Convention Centre

Thanks to Crown, I have managed to excel in my role as a Food and Beverage Attendant at Sky City Convention Centre! Crown taught me everything I ever needed to know about the hospitality industry!

I would recommend that anyone who wants to gain knowledge about hospitality or is interested to learn about the dynamics of food and beverage to join Crown!
