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.|
The ITT's flagship student event, Future You, has been held at WTM since 2009 as part of the Careers in Travel day. The leading event of its kind in the UK, Future You provides students with the opportunity to hear from leading industry figures about their careers and hear their hints and tips for success first hand.
In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to network and speak with a number of organisations actively looking to engage with them. For an up to date list of participating companies, and details of the WTM Careers in Travel day, visit the WTM website : http://london.wtm.com/events/student-programme/student-programme

Following the success of the WTM event, Future You is now taking place annually around the UK.
During the academic year, Future You on the Road will travel around the UK providing a unique event for students to hear from young aspiring professionals and having the opportunity to engage with organisations about future career opportunities. The events are hosted by ITT Centre of Excellence Universities and dates and locations can be found at http://www.ittfutureyou.com/
ITT created the Centres of Excellence status to recognise leading universities keen on working particularly closely with the Institute.
Universities with Centre of Excellence status will be able to use a dedicated logo, receive support in organising industrial placements, have access to high level industry speakers, have access to senior industry figures for research purposes and will grant an annual ITT Centre of Excellence Student of the Year award to a student identified by the university.
