Service Industries Internships
In 2019, students who have completed a programme at Whenua Iti Outdoors in Tourism Operations, Adventure Tourism Leadership, Manaaki Tāpoi or Uniformed Services, may be offered the opportunity to enrol in a second programme offering internships in the Service Industries sector.
The aim of the programme will be to offer workplace internships in local companies and businesses which support our region’s tourism sector. The programme will be structured as four x 4 day residential blocks. Students will be placed with a local employer for work experience and will also be offered mentoring and on-going training during the programme. This exciting new initiative will enable students to gain an insight into the service industries and tourism sectors. They will have the opportunity to find out what it’s like to work in this area, the training and qualification requirements and employment opportunities. Students will be able to achieve credits towards NCEA Level 2 and 3.
Places in this exciting new programme will be limited.
