While most of our programmes will remain the same in 2018 we are adding one new programme, Tourism Operations and redesigning the current Primary Industries and Aquaculture & Maritime programmes.
• Tourism Operations
This new programme will be based at Whenua Iti Outdoors and will be offered in four x one week block courses. The programme is aimed at students who want to work in NZ’s fast-growing tourism sector and aims to provide students with the entry level skills and understanding they need to go on into employment or further study. This is a practical hands-on course that will involve multiple site visits to the main tourist attractions in our region.
• Primary Industries – Redevelopment of Programme
The Primary Industries are the backbone of the NZ economy and cover a wide range of sectors and occupations. This programme will focus on our region’s main primary industries of horticulture, aquaculture, viticulture, agriculture and conservation. Students will get a taste of these different areas to discover the many employment and training opportunities available. This is a hands-on, experiential programme that can lead directly into further study or employment.
