The centre will be the second of its kind in the country, the first having opened at ITC's Botany Campus in 2009. ITC, a premium supplier in the airline, airport and travel and tourism industries, recently won the award for innovation at the New Zealand Tourism Awards. "We know our Airport Training Centre, where we run our Certificate in Aviation, was a real contributing factor in that, " says ITC's Marketing Director Claire Huxley. "We are always seeking innovative ways to provide our students with real-life experience, and the practical nature of the course, which focuses on careers with an airline, airport or ground-handling agent, means that our graduates ready to work in their chosen fields." The facilities are certainly something special -- ITC's huge airport training centres simulate real-world airports, including check in, customs, gate lounges, and even planes where students are trained in all aspects of in-flight ser vice. The Certificate in Aviation course also incorporates the CODECO online check in system, currently used by 52 airlines worldwide. Students are trained to handle the stages before and during check in, check in variations and irregularities, and gate handling. Other specialist units include dealing with dangerous goods, aviation security and baggage processing. "I am learning so much about the travel industry," student Alison Harris says. "This course is grooming me for a job at the airport." There is a real confidence when you speak to the Certificate of Aviation students -- they know this is the right place for them to be. Student Helen says that after a visit to the airport "and having the staff members of Menzies Aviation comment on how everything we are learning here is relevant to a future job at the airport, it made me feelproud to have chosen to do this course and know that we are learning the right things to gain our future dream jobs." Both ITC's Botany and City Campuses are taking 2011 enrolments now.

Tel: 09 6360090 Fax: 09 6360091 Contest to pick top bun bakers The battle of the buns is on again. Entries are now being accepted for the annual Easter Bun Bake Off. Goodman Fielder national field sales man- ager Paul Howley says the competition is bound to be tough. Bakers around the country will need to be in top form, as a master judge will now assess all entries to ensure consist- ency of standards across New Zealand. A North Island and South Island winner will be announced. Judges will look for straight crosses, appli- cation of the bun glaze, crust colour, crumb soft- ness, even dispersal of fruit and a good aromatic flavour. Each bakery must use three Champion products, one of which must be either Cham- pion bread mix, hot cross bun mix or Champion flour. The competition runs until March with the winners announced by early April. The winning bakeries will receive $1500 each plus a customised pro- motion package for the store. Bakeries have until March 9 to enter. To enter the Easter Bun Bake Off phone 0800-11-0800 or register online at www.cham pionflour.co.nz. Cheerful start for French maids Three cheers: The La Petite Cheries cheerleading team will be egging on the French rugby sevens side from the stands dressed in French maids at the annual Wellington tournament: From left: Laura Wilkinson, Dawn Munro, Melissa Harwood, Jasmeen Makan and Libby Jeyes. By SCOTT MORGAN A group of Auckland cheerleaders dressed as French maids are set to tantalise the NZI Wellington Sevens crowd later this week. The five friends, known as the La Petite Cheries, have entered a cheerleading competition at the event that will see them getting in behind the French team. We re using social networking sites to get as much support behind us as we can, team member Jasmeen Makan says. I wanted to go to the Sevens any- way, but it s so hard to get tickets. Fifteen other teams from around New Zealand will also cheer for other countries at the tournament. But the Epsom resident believes the group, who ve had cheerleading experi- ence with the Blues Super 15 side and New Zealand Warriors league team, have the talent to take out the $7000 first prize. We saw the competition and thought, This is perfect because we all met through cheerleading. We ve had a few friends that ve gone down before -- with all the costumes it looks really exciting. A video made by the group showing them cheering to Lady Marmalade will screen in Westpac Stadium during the tournament. The group plans on driv- ing down to Wellington on the Thursday, collecting votes along the way.
