Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS)
Career Training Institute of Australia (CTIA) offers Certificate I and Certificate II qualifications in Tourism and Hospitality with the option to progress to a Certificate III or Diploma level qualification, funded by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training’s VET investment budget.
CTIA can tailor a training program to meet the individual needs of your school.
Programs provide an introduction to the tourism and hospitality industries and could lead to entry level positions within these two rapidly growing employment areas. Successful completion of a Certificate II qualification will enable students to gain an additional 4 QCE points, will assist students by building on their employability skills and will enhance success with resumes, applications and interviews by showing an understanding of cultural awareness in today’s society.
With the introduction of the ATAR system, CTIA is working closely with schools to assist in tailoring programs and extending qualifications to a Certificate III level. These programs are being designed to be delivered within your current school curriculum.
SAS to Nationally Recognised Qualification – For schools currently providing Tourism and Hospitality under SAS, please speak to us regarding an arrangement enabling your school to deliver a Certificate II Tourism or Hospitality giving students a nationally recognised qualification and providing a pathway to Certificate III qualification to align with QCAA requirements..

Feedback on our courses:
“Thanks again for last week – best experience I have been on in 20 years of teaching” – Greg Hamilton – HOD Senior School Mossman, State High School
It’s been very remiss of me not to be in touch before this. Our students had an absolutely fabulous time on the camp and have not stopped raving about their experiences since. Thank you so much for inviting us to be involved and for providing this wonderful opportunity for them. It has really opened their eyes and, as is obvious from their feedback, encouraged some to think more about their future careers. A win/win!
Many, many thanks,
*Teacher* – This course has provided opportunities for our college and students that they will value for the rest of their lives. The skills, knowledge and training that these students have received from this course has had a significant impact on their personal journey. Not only is this an opportunity for training in the Tourism industry, but also to allow students to build resilience and confidence outside their comfort zones. Thank you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
I have gained a lot of experience from participating in a wide range of activities which I may have not thought about trying. It has given me more insight into what types of tourism activities that could be offered in my community. It has given me more tourism ideas to talk about in my teaching of business. The facilities are good at the centre with a wide range of activities students can participate in.
This experience has been an amazing & truly interesting experience that I will take into full consideration. It’s also given me a better understanding of aboriginal culture & how connected everything is. (land, sea, air). Thank you for this opportunity & thank you for everything.
It was really good in my opinion. I thought it was really educational. I can benefit a lot from this for my future. I’ve learnt how to do other things I’ve never thought were possible. I really enjoyed it and would honestly do it again. Best experience.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and have taken a lot out of it. I learnt more of indigenous history and aboriginal culture as well as flora and fauna. I thank everyone for think experience and should be longer.
