KIA ORANA ~ TUROU ORO MAI

Our support to our learners continues to guide them by providing realistic courses and offering qualifications that match the expectation of our industry stakeholders.

Our accredited courses are internationally recognised offering our learners
the opportunity to link on to further diploma and degree programmes and our community education courses are relevant to the wants and needs of our
community.

We cover all areas of hospitality including Food & Beverage, Culinary Arts, Front Office and Housekeeping through full qualifications and short courses that are relevant to our industry. We also offer Diplomas in Travel and Tourism and Hospitality Management Tourism and Hospitality Management as well as our Kia Orana Service course in collaboration with the Cook Islands Tourism Corporation.

We strive to be flexible and current in what we offer and are looking at new avenues to expand our portfolio.

We continue to offer Automotive, Building, Electrical and Plumbing, Gasfitting and Drain-laying and are currently working on expanding our curriculum to include Engineering, Welding, Refrigeration/Air-Conditioning and Electronics.

It gives me great pleasure to present you with the 2019 prospectus. The Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute aims to be a leader in the provision of relevant, innovative and versatile programmes and training models that enhance educational and cultural outcomes for our students. The success of our students is the primary focus for our organisation and we aim to support every that chooses to study with us so that they reach their full potential.

We have a wide variety of programmes being offered in Rarotonga. These qualifications carry accreditation with our own Academic Board and registering authorities in the Cook Islands. We also have programs alongside our partners in Tourism in the Cook Islands as well as NZ providers such as SKILLS International, Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS) and BCITO to primarily support us in the development of our Business, Tourism/ Hospitality and Trades courses on offer this year.

This year, we have expanded our portfolio to include a range of courses on offer which fall under accredited and non-accredited courses. Our request for more upskilling from industries in all areas has prompted our need to develop a new division called Business Partnerships. This includes delivery to all industries which services training that is relevant to your needs and requests. The concept of upskilling allows industries to engage their employees in customized training packages from us that are contextual to
your needs.

Continuing education programmes continue to run in Mangaia, Aitutaki, Atiu and Pukapuka. We have also collaborated with schools in the southern group to establish trades and hospitality learning programmes for secondary school and adult students.
