NZ2202 - New Zealand Certificate in Tourism (Level 4)
Ensuring the future sustainability, kaitiakitanga, of New Zealand's tourism industry underpins this programme.
Bring your passion and creativity and be a part of the rebuild of the New Zealand tourism industry. Our international borders may be closed for now but our domestic and local tourism market is gaining strength and is set to fill the gaps, especially with regions like Nelson that are already on our domestic friend’s regular destination lists.
Right from the get-go we are seeing Kiwi’s using the opportunity to explore their own backyard and embrace the opportunity to travel around our beautiful country.
This programme offers the opportunity to meet with industry and interact with a number of roles which will offer you clarity for your future career path. You will also learn how to use sustainable tourism management and savvy staff recruitment skills and grow your expertise in analysing business systems and processes.
Nelson has always been a unique and popular New Zealand 'go-to' in the domestic tourism market with many Kiwi’s making it their annual summer spot, and many businesses holding their conferences in our friendly region.
Bounded by three national parks, the Nelson region offers experiences for everyone from the mountains to the sea and is known for the artist communities, vineyards and boutique food and beverage producers that abound.
It’s no surprise that our travel and tourism sector took Nelson to the top of the ASB Regional Economic Scoreboard in 2017 with year-on growth in both Domestic and International visitors. This has been supported with an influx of New Zealanders re-locating to the region and is reflected by the growth seen at the Nelson Airport, which has recently undergone a multi-million dollar upgrade to support our growing infra-structure.
All of this means that not only is Nelson an accessible and great place to study Travel and Tourism but that it is an innovative and forward-moving region that is well poised to be a significant part of the recovery of New Zealand Tourism.
You will graduate from this programme with robust, broad-based operational skills and be capable in using the Amadeus travel reservation system used by the travel industry worldwide so you can apply confidently for vacancies in the tourism and travel sector.
If you are looking to start up or buy a tourism business or for change in career into tourism and travel, this programme will provide you with what you need.
