AUCKLAND CITY HARBOUR NEWS, SEPTEMBER 11, 2013
Do you want to work at
the airport or an airline?? With an estimated 800 jobs a year needed in aviation, this really is the
time to train for a booming industry. The Aviation Industry Association
(AIA) believes that 4000 aviation roles will need to be filled over the
next five years within New Zealand.
The International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC) is the ideal place to train for a career
in airline and aviation. ITC is the FIRST and ONLY college for 2013 to implement an
International Check in system "Ready to check in" as part of their aviation course.
It even has a purpose built Airport Training Centre at both its City & Botany Campus
"We are delighted to introduce this exciting new check in system," says
ITC's Managing Director Kerry Priestley. "We are always seeking innovative ways to
provide our students with real-life experience. The practical nature of this system means
that students who are looking for a career with an airline, airport or ground-handling agent,
will have the chance to show employers that they have the right skills".
"My training at ITC has definitely helped me with my confidence and knowledge of the airline,
travel and tourism Industry and thanks to them and my hard work, it has all paid off. I now have
an exciting career as a Passenger Service Agent working for Menzies at Auckland International Airport"
says Shelly Pomare ITC student.
Both ITC's Botany and City Campuses are still taking 2013 enrolments now or you
can study from home with our Distance Learning courses

Auckland could lose a prime
piece of recreational land at
Gladstone Rd, Parnell.
are speaking up to give
people a chance to have their
say before it's too late.
Waitemata Local Board
chairman Shale Chambers
and Councillor Mike Lee say
they feel a moral obligation
to let residents know about a
deal that so far has only
been discussed behind closed
It concerns a treaty settle-
ment redress proposal
regarding land at Blacketts
Point (Gladstone Park).
The sites affected are the
Fred Ambler Lookout on
Gladstone Rd, the Gladstone
Tennis Club and the neigh-
bouring childcare centre and
playground. The land is
owned by the Crown.
In an August 5 memor-
andum from chief crown
negotiator Mike Dreaver to
Auckland Council's general
counsel Wendy Brandon, Mr
Dreaver outlines the Crown's
He says the Crown intends
to transfer the site of the
Fred Ambler Lookout to the
Marutuahu iwi as redress in
recognition of their historical
Marutuahu iwi hail from
the Coromandel Peninsula.
Mr Dreaver says the site
holds cultural significance
for the Marutuahu iwi as the
site of a reserve that was
promised to them in 1842.
The area was frequently
used as a base by the
Marutuahu iwi on trading
journeys from the Coroman-
In the memorandum Mr
Dreaver says the preser-
vation of the lookout and
associated carpark will be a
condition of the transfer.
However, the rest of the
land would be commercial
redress, meaning the iwi
would have to purchase it.
The Crown proposes that
the tennis club's existing
lease be protected for a
period of 15 years from
But Mr Lee and Mr
Chambers fear that in the
long term the land where the
tennis club, childcare centre
and playground sit could be
The real concern is these
deals are going on and
[people] don't know about it.
Sure, there are connections
between the Marutuahu iwi
and this land, but that
doesn't mean you should
transfer well-used com-
munity land,'' Mr Chambers
Mr Chambers has reques-
ted details of the claim's
He wants to know why the
land was promised in 1842
and exactly what was prom-
ised, but hasn't received the
We want to be responsible
about this. We want to warn
people and we welcome their
ideas,'' he says.
There's not an enormous
amount of open space in
Parnell. To lose an actively
used recreation park would
be a significant blow.''
