TIME (Travel Industry Mentor Experience) NZ has a new partnership with Tourism Australia’s Aussie Specialist Program. This includes the inaugural Aussie Specialist Scholarship.
The development was announced at a TIME event at Crown Institute of Studies on in July, which celebrated graduates from recent intakes and also announced four new mentees and their mentors.
The scholarship covers full TIME programme fees for six months of dedicated, tailored mentoring from a strategically selected senior industry professional plus on-going benefits including the TIME to Learn programme and additional one-off mentoring with a mentor of choice (subject to availability).
TIME NZ is now calling for scholarship applications from industry professionals in a mid-level management role who are qualified Aussie Specialists with a minimum of three years industry experience (pre-Covid), and open to advancing themselves professionally, accelerating their career and growing their networks. If agents are not already an Aussie Specialist, they need to qualify to be eligible. It takes five training modules to become an official Aussie expert.
The closing date for scholarship applications is Friday, 17 September and applicants must be available to commence the programme the end of October/beginning of November – date to be confirmed.
