(4/7/2007)

New Zealandís Wellington Institute of Technology (WelTec) have formalized an agreement with Sekolah Tinggi Pariwisata Bali (STP Bali) - Bali's leading hospitality and tourism education college..

The agreement provides for the exchange of teaching staff and students between the two tertiary institutions and includes a provision for students from STP to come to New Zealand to complete WelTec's degree program in Hospitality Management or for international qualifications, such as City and Guilds certificates and diplomas.

"This is an excellent opportunity for STP Bali and for our students," said STP Bali Director, I Made Sudjana. "As well as 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 said 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 increasingly want people who have an understanding of the wider world," said 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 said that as WelTec is recognized 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," said Russell.

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