Tourism students taste success

IT was another busy and productive year for Rosny College’s Vocational Education and Training (VET) tourism class in 2017.

The students ended the year on a high note with a graduation ceremony at Wrest Point when they were presented with certificates by RACT chief executive officer and special guest Harvey Lennon.

The evening featured a PowerPoint display that provided an overview of the year, including images of the students during their interstate trip program, vocational placements and other industry functions.

Rosny College VET Tourism course coordinator Rodney Anderson said the class had once again enjoyed “considerable industry support” from organisations such as the RACT, Federal Group, SKAL International, the Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania and the Department of Premier and Cabinet.

“The 2017 RACT Student of the Year Award went to Bri Adams, who has been employed by Zoo Doo and the Minister for Tourism Award for Commitment and Dedication was won by Isobel Nillsen, who is waiting to take up a position at Cradle Mountain Hotel,” he said.

“Several students from the class have already been successful in obtaining employment in the tourism/hospitality industry and are set to embark on a rewarding career.”
