‘Ahopanilolo Technical Institute (ATI) is the only vocational college in Tonga providing Cert IV accredited technical training in the tourism and hospitality industry. Courses are aimed at providing opportunities to students who do not fit into more academic pathways and graduates play a pivotal role in Tonga’s emerging tourism industry.
ATI needs a self-driven and motivated volunteer with experience working in hotel reception, reservations and housekeeping to help improve the hotel management course curriculum and delivery at the school. Your role will involve conducting teacher training aimed at increasing staff capacity and skills in delivering hotel accommodation, housekeeping and front office courses. You will also work with staff to creatively strengthen components of student competency-based learning programs and competency-assessments. Additionally, you will help strengthen management systems, policies and procedures for the students’ work placements in local tourism establishments.
ATI plays an important role in the local community by enhancing the quality and service of the tourism sector as well as assisting other vocational schools with compliance and accreditation. By developing staff capacity at the school, you will make a valuable contribution to the Tongan community’s economic and educational growth, both in the tourism and vocational training sector.
