Peterpans Travel Group
Established in 1998, the Peterpans Travel Group train international and domestic students who must complete an internship as part of their studies. On the back of the success of their internship progamme, Peterpans has recently launched a graduate programme, where graduates gain globally recognised industry qualifications, sales and marketing knowledge, and communication and presentation skills before beginning a management pathway at a Peterpans location for a period of up to 18 months.
With over 50 stores around Australia and New Zealand and 20 to 30 interns in place at any given time, Peterpans Travel Group shortlists applicants and interviews each candidate. Successful candidates are placed in a location that is suitable to their personal skill set and interests.
The programme is hands-on and students leave with an in-depth understanding of the daily operations behind running a successful travel agency and improved international business communication skills. On top of this, the students become Australia and New Zealand destination specialists.
Peterpans Travel Group demonstrates to internship participants that there really is another way to work; that being in a fun, energetic, goal-driven environment is both rewarding and motivating, proving that education really does extend beyond the classroom.
