The ITT’s Future You careers initiative has signed a strategic partnership with the Irish Aviation Students Association (Iasa).
The partnership will see the two organisations collaborate on projects designed to inspire the next generation of travel industry professionals.
As part of the deal, ITT Future You will host its first events in Ireland in 2021, with an autumn showcase following similar events in Russia, Brazil and Kenya.
Claire Steiner, co-founder of ITT Future You, said: “As ITT Future You continues to gain momentum both in the UK and internationally, we have been delighted to have supported Iasa over the past few months
“With so many of our goals aligned it is great to be able to formalise our relationship to help support each other, in our mutual goal of promoting careers and inspiring future generations across the tourism and aviation sectors in both the UK and Ireland,”
Daniel Tetis, chairperson of Iasa, said: “Empowering the next generation is one of our main aims here at Iasa and we are delighted to partner with ITT Future You to achieve this together.
“ITT Future You has done tremendous work in recent years giving students ideas and insights in their future careers and we believe our partnership will enable us to reach students all across Ireland and the UK and we look forward to working together on events in the future.”
Since its creation in 2008, ITT Future You’s free-to-attend events have attracted more than 20,000 young people to hear about career opportunities in the travel sector.
