At the end of November, members of our TTA-NZ executive committee attended the 2021 Workforce Wānanga, facilitated by Go With Tourism and attended by a wide variety of Tourism Industry experts. Over the two day wānanga, Tourism Teacher Association members and educators were given a voice through our representatives to feed into wide ranging discussions on the changing nature of New Zealand’s Tourism workforce and contribute to big picture thinking on creating solutions to the challenges the industry faces.

As an association, we are committed to ensuring our ākonga and rangatahi are central to to these discussions, and that robust, quality Tourism education programmes in New Zealand secondary schools are an integral part of the solutions proposed. We look forward to continuing to work with Go With Tourism, industry partners and local / central government as we develop a collaborative approach to growing a great Tourism workforce.
