The Institute of Tourism Studies hosted an Industry-Student Meet-up, at the Institute’s Main Campus in St Julians as part of the European Vocational Skills Week.
The Industry-Student Meet-Up was held with the aim of giving students the unique opportunity to meet and get to know different reputable organisations, which may also offer them an interview/trial within their organisation. As for the Foundation, Certificate and Higher National Diploma students, this served as an opportunity for them to find the perfect organisation for their summer local placement (LITP).
Representatives from various hotels, restaurants, caterers, travel agencies and other companies from the hospitality and tourism industry where present for this event.
ITS CEO, Mr Pierre Fenech stated that “This is a one of a kind opportunity for our students, which may be used as a first step onto their future career within the Tourism and Hospitality Industry. This is the second year that ITS has hosted this event which proved successful both times round. We have had great feedback from the Industry and our students appreciate the opportunity which we are offering them.”
