Tourism - NCEA Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Deane

In the past two years, our world has changed dramatically.  None more so than the international industry of Tourism. As a country that depends on tourism, we find ourselves having to shift from a focus on the international traveller to those who already exist within our borders. 

Level 3 Tourism focuses on our most unique characteristic Te Taapoi Maaori - Tourism Maaori. You will be challenged to understand our country and its attractions from the perspective of Te Ao Maaori while learning about some of the fundemental values that underpin our country's tourism industry; manaakitanga, kaitiakitanga, and whakawhanaungatanga.  The course focuses on why tourists come to New Zealand; to see our spectacular scenery, to experience our thrilling adventure tourism and to understand the uniqueness of Maaori culture. As well as learning about New Zealand's tourist attractions, Level 3 Tourism aims to develop your knowledge about the Waikato by learning about the stories and the significance of places to our local iwi Tainui. 

We also examine the economic impact of Tourism on both New Zealand and the world, bringing a critical eye to how the industry plays an important role in the development of nations.

The course builds on the knowledge gained in Tourism 7 and offers Unit Standards towards the National Certificate in Tourism (Level 3) which will help you to gain entry into training for a career in this exciting and varied career pathway.
