North Shore's Brass and Woodwind Specialist Shop for over 25 years Are you ready for a high flying career? The International Travel Col- lege of New Zealand (ITC) is the perfect place to start your travel and tourism career. It has a purpose built Air- port Training Centre at both its City and Botany campu- ses. The facilities are certainly something special -- ITC's huge airport training centres simulate real-world airports, including check in, customs, gate lounges, and even planes where students are trained in all aspects of in-flight service. ITC is a premium supplier in the airline, airport and travel and tourism indus- tries, recently winning many awards for their innovation and dedication to all round business excellence. We know our Airport Training Centre, where we run our Certificate in Avi- ation, was a real contributing factor in that,'' ITC's market- ing director Claire Huxley says. We are always seeking innovative ways to provide our students with real-life experience, and the practical nature of the course, which focuses on careers with an airline, airport or ground- handling agent, means that our graduates are ready to work in their chosen fields.'' The Certificate in Aviation course also incorporates the CODECO online check in sys- tem, currently used by 52 air- lines worldwide. Students are trained to handle the stages before and during check in, check in variations and irregularities, and gate handling. Other specialist units include dealing with danger- ous goods, aviation security and baggage processing. I am learning so much about the travel industry,'' student Alison Harris says. This course is grooming me for a job at the airport.'' There is a real confidence when you speak to the Cer- tificate of Aviation students -- they know this is the right place for them to be. Student Helen says that after a visit to the airport and having the staff members of Menzies Aviation comment on how everything we are learning here is rel- evant to a future job at the airport, it made me feel proud to have chosen to do this course and know that we are learning the right things to gain our future dream jobs.'' Both ITC's Botany and City campuses are taking 2013 enrolments now.

Skills shortage points way to career change MOST VISITED Top 5 most visited job pages Job page -- Number of visits Registered nurse -- 15,652 Psychologist -- 14,707 Primary school teacher -- 11,967 Civil engineer -- 11,956 Early childhood teacher -- 11,646 Note: One person can visit a page more than once, so the number of visits doesn't represent the number of people researching a job. Are you thinking of a career change in 2013? The new year is when many of us reconsider our career path. A SEEK survey in 2012 showed that 34 per cent of New Zealanders were seeking a new job and 42 per cent were monitoring the job mar- ket -- only 24 per cent of people were settled in their jobs -- and this trend looks set to con- tinue in 2013. One indicator of the careers New Zealanders researched in 2012 is the most visited job on Careers New Zealand's website. The most viewed job page on the website in 2012 was registered nurse. Messages about the shortage of workers in the health sector are clearly getting out to job seekers, along with the shortage of engineers. A further indication of this is that the ICT industry has a shortage of wor- kers -- the ICT industry summary page was the most visited industry summary page on the Careers New Zealand website with 11,655 visits,'' Careers New Zea- land acting chief execu- tive Jay Lamburn says. Along with training, job and salary infor- mation Careers New Zealand provides a num- ber of online tools. It's important to be aware of your personality, inter- ests and the skills you have. Career Quest, Know Your Skills, and Skill Matcher are free inter- active online tools that can help you find career options that match your personality,'' Ms Lamburn says. If reassessing your career or job path is on your agenda over the next few weeks, the Careers New Zealand website careers.govt.nz makes it easier by pro- viding more than 400 online job profile pages. Its jobs pages are sim- ple to navigate and include pictorial infor- mation on salary bands, training required and job opportunities. The layout of our job information allows for content to be quickly up- loaded, making the web- site able to dynamically respond to changes in the job market,'' Careers New Zealand website content team leader Michelle Browning says. This is really import- ant as New Zealanders need quality, up-to-date information so they can stay informed in a rap- idly changing employ- ment market,'' she adds.
