Wellington Institute of Technology (WelTec) has formalised an agreement with leading Bali hospitality and tourism education college Sekolah Tinggi Pariwisata Bali (STP Bali).

The partnership is for staff and student exchanges between the two tertiary institutions and also provides for students from STP Bali to come to New Zealand to complete WelTec’s degree programme in Hospitality Management or international qualifications such as City and Guilds certificates and diplomas.

“This is an excellent opportunity for STP Bali and for our students,” says STP Bali Director, I Made Sudjana. “As well as the learning that we can all make from tutor exchanges, our students will now have the chance to gain a higher-level qualification in New Zealand and be confident that they will receive the best education possible. WelTec has an international reputation for its teaching and the support services available to students.”

Kay Nelson, WelTec’s International Director and Head of School for Hospitality and Tourism says that the partnership with STP Bali is one of a number that WelTec is developing around the world to offer opportunities for students and staff to gain an international perspective as part their education. “Employers are increasingly wanting people who have an understanding of the wider world,” says Ms Nelson. “And those students who don’t travel still gain this perspective from visiting students and tutors.”

Introductions for the partnership were made through Education Network Indonesia (ENI), an association of several New Zealand universities, institutes of technology, high schools and private training establishments supported by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. ENI looks for opportunities to attract more international students to New Zealand.

ENI Chairperson Bill Russell says that as WelTec is recognised as a leader in hospitality and tourism education it is an excellent partner for STP Bali, which is a government tertiary institution aimed at meeting education needs of those wanting to be part of the tourism industry in Bali and other parts of Indonesia.

“The Bali government is making a major investment in tourism education with STP Bali but currently it can only take students up to diploma level. The relationship with WelTec will give the students the opportunity to gain a higher-level education,” says Mr Russell.

The first tutor exchange will likely take place later this year.
