  • Education New Zealand hosts first-ever NZ-China Education Week

    Early Childhood Education Symposium

    The inaugural New Zealand-China Early Childhood Education Symposium with China Centre for International People to People Exchange (CCIPPE), an agency under the Ministry of Education of China, was well-received by the audience of over 1,000 people.

    ENZ General Manager – International, Lisa Futschek, provided opening remarks alongside distinguished officials from China who expressed support for the dialogue around ECE to continue between our two countries.

    “It was very moving to hear Deputy Director General Xiaochun YANG speak te reo Māori in his closing remarks,” ENZ Director – Greater China, Miranda Herbert, said.

    “The ECE Symposium highlights the special relationship between New Zealand and China and our long history of engaging in bilateral dialogue in a variety of education related fields to learn from each other.”

    Educators tune into the ECE Symposium.

    Part of the success of participation was due to CCIPE’s social media post which attracted over 8000 reads (pre-event). CCIPPE article with photos: 2020中国-新西兰学前教育研讨会在线成功举办 (

    The entire symposium was bilingual – no small feat in a virtual environment. ENZ used subtitles on pre-recorded presentations, interpretation for the live speakers and engaged a bilingual MC with experience in the ECE field.

    University of Auckland Associate Dean International – Faculty of Education and Social Work, Marek Tesar, presented a session at the symposium titled “How ECE Teachers Shape Our Children: Fostering Quality ECE Teachers—Formal Education and Professional Development."

    “A fantastic event, which brought together an interdisciplinary group of people to discuss the important topic of early childhood education. It has emphasised the many opportunities for ongoing collaboration between New Zealand and China and I hope that this is the first of many such symposia – hopefully in person next time!” he said.

    The Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) present at Sino-New Zealand Higher Vocational Education.

    8th Sino-New Zealand Higher Vocational Education Conference

    This year’s Sino-New Zealand Higher Vocational Education conference moved to a virtual platform this year which enabled continued dialogue between New Zealand and China.

    Over three half-days, it focused on challenges and innovations in online learning and international collaboration for managers, teachers and researchers in vocational education and training.

    Conference organisers, Wintec and co-organiser, Skills International worked closely with China partners Tianjin Light Industrial Vocational Technical College, Qingdao Vocational Technical College and Central Institute for Vocational Technical Education to deliver an engaging event for the live audience in Tianjin and the virtual attendees.

    Agent Seminars

    The Agent Seminars reached an audience of 500 attendees from across the Greater China region over two days.

    Agents were welcomed by New Zealand’s Ambassador to China, H.E. Clare Fearnley, heard from Immigration New Zealand, Tourism New Zealand, and even learned how to order a green tea in te reo Māori.

    With over 44 New Zealand institutions and regions exhibiting in the virtual exhibition hall, agents were able to connect through the virtual meeting rooms to have one-on-one conversations. ENZ trialled a virtual conferencing platform created for the China market that allowed our Chinese agents to join via WeChat and tailor their view to local language.

    ENZ wants to thank all the exhibitors, presenters and attendees who participated in New Zealand Education Week to help make it a success and we appreciate your adaptability to a China-friendly virtual platform. 

    ENZ has received great feedback from both sides on the programme and future partnership opportunities – there is a strong desire to continue dialogue.

    Note, the Agent Seminars were over two days and the majority of presentations are in Chinese language.

  • India to feature as Country of Honour at NZIEC KI TUA

    Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ) has joined with the High Commission of India in Wellington to bring to life this partnership, which celebrates the growing education connections between Aotearoa New Zealand and India.   

    The announcement comes close on the heels of significant bilateral engagements between New Zealand and India over the last year 

    The Country of Honour designation at NZIEC KI TUA celebrates New Zealand’s international education connections with partner countries and reflects one of the conference’s key valueshononga (connections). 

    ENZ’s Acting Chief Executive, Dr Linda Sissons, said ENZ is delighted to headline India at NZIEC KI TUA and build on the strong foundation of international education connections with partners in the country. 

    Students from India are the second-largest group studying with New Zealand. We are enriched by the skills and research know-how that Indian students bring to our country. New Zealand has a number of valuable institutional and government-level partnerships that make for a strong, bilateral education relationship with India 

    We look forward to showcasing and celebrating these connections at NZIEC KI TUA 2024.” 

    ENZ’s Regional Director Asia (excluding China), Ben Burrowes, said having India feature as Country of Honour is a valuable opportunity for the international education sector to contribute to the conference programme with sessions that surface insights and learnings focused on India. 

    New Zealand and India have such a broad education relationship, from student recruitment and student experience to partnerships on an institutional and governmental level. There’s much to surface and share by way of insights to continue forging our strong education ties. 

    “We look forward to collaborating with our sector colleagues to deliver a conference programme that showcases these connections and explores new partnerships moving forward.”   

    NZIEC KI TUA delegates can look forward to programme elements that explore and surface insights from New Zealand’s international education connections with India and also experience a few cultural delights during conference.

    ENZ General Manager International, Lisa Futschek, and IIM Ahmedabad Director Prof Bharat Bhaskar sign an education cooperation arrangement during the NZ India Education Connect initiative in February.

  • Tauranga-based group visits Korea

    E-News caught up with one of the organisers of the visit, Education Tauranga’s Anne Young.  

    What led to the decision to visit Korea as a group of institutions?

    Education Tauranga’s 2013-2017 strategy focuses strongly on collaboration between member institutions. We find that we can make more of an impact in a market as a group, and, with a diverse range of institutions participating in activities, we can demonstrate the pathways that exist within our region to cater for all levels of education.

    Korean students are enrolled in the full range of education institutions in Tauranga – from primary right through to tertiary. This is one of the reasons Education Tauranga’s Korean student numbers have continued to rise in 2015, while declining in New Zealand overall. We also attribute our success in Korea to the fact that we have committed local agents, strong local government support, highly effective links with the Korean community in the Western Bay of Plenty and institutions that provide excellent education and care to all international students, including those from Korea.

    In choosing Korea as our group visit destination, we were able to further capitalise on our already strong position in that market.  

    What are the advantages of a group visit such as this?

    The main advantage of a group visit is that it’s easier to get noticed and to secure meetings than when you’re an individual institution travelling on your own. Promotional costs can be shared, too. In our case, 21 institutions were pitching in, meaning our advertising dollar went a lot further, resulting greater numbers of prospective students at our fairs and good attendance of officials at other events.

    Having trip organisers taking care of all the planning, organising and bookings meant it was a much more efficient process for everybody. It also alleviated stress for some first time travellers to Korea who didn’t have to face many of the challenging ‘unknown factors’ that can pop up when organising your own recruitment trip.  

    What are the downsides?

    I don’t think there are any particular disadvantages to marketing as a group offshore. However, there are challenges in the logistics of dealing with such a large group, such as transport arrangements and getting everyone to where they need to be on time, as well as ensuring that planned activities are of benefit to all institutions from a range of sectors.  

    What were the highlights?

    We attracted over 400 prospective students through our fairs which was a great success for one small region of New Zealand. The students who came along were already pretty well informed about Education Tauranga’s education offerings, demonstrating that the effort that we put into advertising prior to the events hit the mark!

    Several alumni families also attended the events, and it was wonderful to see them engaging with prospective students and their families and giving their perspective on what studying in our region is like.

    The support of big New Zealand brands such as Zespri was also fantastic; their product promotion at our fair went down really well.

    Being hosted at the New Zealand Residence by the Deputy Head of Mission to Korea and Education New Zealand was also a highlight as we were able to recognise the contribution they had made to ensuring our activities were a success.  

    Are there any outcomes on the horizon or promising connections made?

    We’re hoping our visit will result in an increase in student numbers from Korea in 2016. The signs are promising so far, with many new students expressing an interest in coming here. Time will tell however!

    We have also strengthened relationships with Tauranga’s ‘friendship city’ of Ansan, with a larger study tour group coming in 2016 than came in 2015.  

    What would you do differently next time?

    The visit to Korea was our second regional group visit (we visited China together as a group in March this year) so we already had experience in what did and didn’t work and were able to iron out any issues prior to this trip.  

    Any hints and tips for together groups thinking of undertaking this sort of group visit?

    I think undertaking a visit of this kind is very effective for regions or groups of institutions. My top tips for making your visit a success are as follows:

    • Do your research and have a plan. Know exactly what activities you want to do and why

    • Involve all participating institutions in the planning process

    • Make sure you have support from local councils and your Economic Development Agency

    • Enter the market with a strong brand that all participants believe in

    • Make sure you have translated materials and have translators who know your product/region

    • The work you do prior to arrival is just as important (if not more than) as the work you will do while in country

    • Work with ENZ and local Embassy staff

    • Leverage your alumni

    • Follow up with the people you met with during the visit!
