ACDTP2

Level 2 Tourism Plus Academy. One hour a day.

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Van der Kraaij

2020/21 saw huge changes to the Tourism Industry in New Zealand and across the world.  In response to these changes, we have taken the backbone of the knowledge and skills from the Tourism Academy and added some future-proofing. The Tourism Plus Academy will also incorporate knowledge and professional skills from across the service sector. The new look academy will provide real opportunities for enthusiastic students to gain knowledge and skills relevant to the Tourism Industry and that are transferable across many customer service based career pathways in an ever changing world. This qualification works within the NCEA Level 2 and 3 framework whilst also meeting the requirements for the Level 2 Vocational Pathway. A close relationship with tertiary providers supports the pathway into further education.

The Tourism Plus Academy incorporates standards from Tourism, Workplace English, Customer Service, Personal Finance and Communications and Marketing. Targeted work experience will also provide clear avenues into employment. We will provide students with a breadth of understanding of the Service Sector Industry, both in terms of further study and employment.

Our aim is to produce reliable, resourceful, resilient leaders  who can think for themselves. Students who can communicate effectively in a wide variety of situations, are customer focussed and responsive to client needs. Students who can work as part of a team, who are able to communicate ideas and information and are confident to participate in new situations. Our graduates will leave us as independent, enterprising individuals with a clear direction for their future pathway..  

The Tourism Plus Academy is a single option at Level 2 and a double option at Level 3. At Level 2 students can also select to do the one hour Hospitality option. This Level 2 combination is an exception to the rule that students are only allowed to select one academy.

In the second year of the programme we begin to explore specific interest pathways, which allow us to better target student needs outside of the classroom. These pathways can be selected from courses run at Tertiary providers as well as AWVA based modules within school. Students are also encouraged to make full use of the Driver’s Licence programme and driving lessons that are an integral part of our Academy programme. All the courses are provided free of charge by AWVA.

All students will need to: complete the MHS online selection process or see Mr Hackett or Mr Tinling, plus complete an AWVA application form and have an interview with the academy tutor. Students will then be notified about whether they have been selected or not.

Places are limited in the academies and are not guaranteed until the application has been confirmed after the above.

All academy students will need to fill out an AWVA one page application form. See Ms Douglas at the Academy Offices for a form or complete the online form here, save to your device and email to Ms Douglas, [email protected] .
