12 Travel & Tourism

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Robinson

Tourism has suffered a setback in recent times but it is poised to become a booming and more resilient industry in New Zealand once more. The Travel and Tourism industry will need numerous workers again in the near future and there are tremendous opportunities available for young people. 

Students will gain an insight into this industry both in New Zealand and around the world.
The 12 Travel and Tourism course is for students with an interest in world travel or are
considering working in the tourist industry sometime in the future. As an industry based subject, Travel and Tourism is ideal for those students who appreciate working at their own pace with one on one teacher guidance.

The course provides up to 26 unit standard credits for NCEA (6 optional credits from US 24726 and US 24727)

This 12TRT course is open to all students but 12TRT students must be willing and able to work independently.

In addition, as part of the 2021 course, it is planned to have an optional field trip around key travel and tourist destinations around Auckland.
