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.|
On a glorious summers evening earlier this month, senior industry executives came together at the annual ITT Summer party on the unique Terrace pavilion at the House of Commons to celebrate with the 2014 Student award winners.
In honour of the late Bella Rangel Callan, who instigated the very first awards back in 2006 and who was a great supporter of the ITT and the work of its education and training Committee, the ITT Student of the Year award will now be known as the Bella Rangel Callan award.
Many congratulations to our worthy award winners!

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.
