The Travel Industry Mentor Experience (TIME) is seeking applications from employees of small businesses with big career ambitions to join the 27th intake of its renowned mentoring program.
“We appreciate that some aspiring TIME applicants might not be able to fund their own participation for a variety of reasons”, says Penny Spencer, founder of the respected not-for-profit mentoring program.
“Many of our Mentees enjoy great support from employers who have the means to cover their TIME fees, and the vision to see the benefit of doing so. But we understand that there are many small business owners who simply don’t have the resources to fully-fund an employee’s professional development through TIME”, continued Penny.
The upcoming 27th TIME Intake commences on 28th June 2017, and interested employees of small businesses are encouraged to apply for a partial scholarship sponsored by the (former) Travel Industry Careers Association (TICA).
“The motivation behind TICA’s scholarship support is to leave a legacy that reflects their organisational goal of fostering and retaining the travel industry’s finest talent. By helping small businesses put talented staff through the mentor program, TICA is providing support for the industry’s grass-roots and its future”, says TIME’s Program Manager, Marie Allom.
The successful applicant will receive a $1,000 contribution from TICA towards TIME’s participation fees, and will join the program’s 27th intake commencing on 28 June 2017.
The TIME Program’s fee of $2,000 (Plus GST) covers six months of dedicated, tailored mentoring from a strategically selected senior industry professional.
“With 50% covered by the TICA scholarship, that’s a small price to pay for six months of dedicated professional attention from your own mentor totally focused on you and your needs”, says Penny Spencer who has presided over dozens of TIME success stories since founding the program in 2009.
If you are committed to equipping yourself for the challenges of today’s dynamic travel, tourism and hospitality industries, take the first step by applying now.
