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.|
ITT and AA Appointments have joined forces to develop and support graduates and employers in the travel and tourism industry. Something that has been talked about for a long time but without any definitive solution.
ITT Graduate Recruitment can help to place new Travel and Tourism Graduates into a position within the industry. We do this by liaising with the Universities and Colleges, meeting students, keeping them informed and encouraging them to do some extra “off the curriculum” work that has a practical edge in order for them to look even more attractive to their prospective employer. We can also deliver to the Lecturers to ensure that we all have a common goal and that it can in fact be realised by us working together to encourage and develop the students so that when they graduate they have an additional edge for their prospective employer within the industry.
We then introduce the graduate to the industry completely free of charge!
This means that businesses get the fresh new talent, the managers of tomorrow, delivered to the door by a tried, tested and trusted specialist recruiter working with the Industry's Institute and the Graduates have a conduit to help them get to the employers instead of posting their CV everywhere and getting nowhere.
If you are an employer and would like to take advantage of getting the best graduates to your door, then please send your vacancy details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch to ensure we have all of the details to match the right Graduate to your needs and your business. Remember this is a completely free service.
Or, if you are studying travel and tourism and about to finish your course or degree then please send your CV and a covering letter via Email to email@example.com. Tell us what you would like to do, why and where and we will get in touch with you. Please note that our use of the term “Graduate” applies to both college and university students who are about to or have recently completed their studies in Travel and Tourism.
Only by working together can we make a difference. Have a look at the process:

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.
