ITT shows its commitment to careers and education by recognition of good practice, student awards, consultancy and much more.
ITT runs an Education & Training Committee chaired by ITT Board Director Claire Steiner. Claire organises student events on behalf of ITT, such as the hugely popular 'Future You' seminar at WTM.
She also represents ITT on external education/ industry bodies. Educational partnerships are an important part of ITT’s careers and education work.
|The most recent being with the Global Travel & Tourism Partnership, a multi-country educational programme to introduce students to careers in travel and tourism.|
Future You at WTM 2015 was another huge success! Over 400 students heard about the multitude of career choices and pathways to success from speakers including Rob Zajko, Director of Talent Aquisition EMEA for Hilton Worldwide and Sam Wrigglesworth, Head of Product Development at Blue Chip Holidays and one of TTG's Tomorrow's Travel Leaders.
For the first time this year, attendees had the opportunity to network and speak with a number of organisations actively looking to engage with them, including STA Travel, Real Gap, Global Spirit, SKAL, Travel Visa and Hilton Worldwide. Our grateful thanks to all who took part!
