STAR / GATEWAY


WELCOME

New Zealand School of Tourism has an impressive and extensive range of Secondary School Programmes, packages and options to help your students get a head start in the exciting industries of airline, tourism and travel.


TRAVEL & TOURISM TEACHER RESOURCES

We have a close relationship with secondary schools nationwide and many of our tertiary students come directly from schools. We recognised the need to offer an alternative to existing resources and assessments at Tertiary level, which led to the completion of packages for the National Certificate in Tourism Level 2 in 2003. Since this launch we have continued to introduce additional unit standard packages & resources, remaining competitive and proactive with other providers. With the fantastic ability to quickly enhance and develop our resources and act on feedback and ideas received from secondary schools, ensuring our packages match what works best for high schools, tourism teachers and secondary schools nationwide.

Our packages include student workbooks, teacher resources & assessments for all unit standards included in the New Zealand Certificate in Tourism Level 2, 52 credits.

All student workbooks come with the assessments (separately).

Teacher kits include a copy of the student workbook & assessment, complete with all answers, marking schedules, extra resources, activities & puzzles which will save on your planning and preparation time.
