Tourism students set to soar

THE past year was a busy, but productive, one for Rosny College’s Vocational Education and Training (VET) tourism class.

The students ended 2016 on a high note with a graduation ceremony at Wrest Point, where they were presented with certificates recognising their recent achievements.

The evening also 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, Destination Southern Tasmania and the Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania.

“This year, the Premier and Minister for Tourism, Will Hodgman, sponsored the Student of the Year Award, which was won by Jacinta Lang, who is planning to undertake a guiding course at the Drysdale Institute of TAFE in 2017,” he said.

“A number of students from the class have already obtained employment in the tourism and hospitality industry and are set to embark on a rewarding career.”
