  • Funding available to reimagine international education

    Registrations of interest are open now for ENZ’s International Education Product Innovation Fund (PIF), closing on Wednesday 4 May 2022. Funding is available to all New Zealand-based organisations and individuals with fresh ideas for international education. 

    The PIF will support providers of education – whether established, new or emerging – to explore, develop and test pilot projects of new products and services that reimagine international education. 

    “New” could mean the mode of delivery, the configuration, the learner experience and learner outcomes, or the type of collaboration. The pilot projects developed through the PIF will help explore what could set New Zealand apart from its competitors, how students want to engage with New Zealand education, and how to increase the sector’s resilience to future shocks. 

    “We are extremely excited to now be receiving registrations of interest for the Product Innovation Fund”, says Euan Howden, ENZ’s Director of Innovation. “By encouraging and enabling the development of new, innovative products and services, we are seeking to position the sector for a more sustainable and resilient future and take advantage of trends such as alternative credentials, life-long learning and flexible learning.” 

    Underlying the PIF is the principle of tukutuku, or partnership. Each pilot project supported through the PIF will be a partnership based on mutual benefit and reciprocity between ENZ and the provider. 

    ENZ will offer funding of up to $300,000 per pilot (but is open to considering proposals that seek greater funding), as well as connections, support and credibility. In turn, ENZ is looking for applicants who can show a commitment of resource, a willingness to share lessons, reporting and insights for broader benefit, an openness to new thinking, and willingness to give best effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi. 

    The PIF is one of ENZ’s initiatives underway to build a sustainable and diverse international education sector for New Zealand which is more resilient to future shocks such as COVID-19. The programme is funded by the Covid Response and Recovery Fund and is linked to the Government’s Strategic Recovery Plan for International Education. 

    The results of the pilots supported through the PIF will eventually inform recommendations to the Government in September 2023 on future investment in the development and diversification of international education.

  • Kōrerorero on quality education

    Panellists included 

    • Dr Dawn Freshwater, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Auckland, who is also the first woman to hold this role 
    • Dr Sandra Regina Goulart Almeida, Vice-Chancellor at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil 
    • Dr Alejandro Ceballos, Vice-Chancellor at the Universidad de Caldas in Colombia. 

    With simultaneous interpretation in Spanish and Portuguese, the session attracted more than 100 attendees and 350 registrations from across Latin America and Aotearoa New Zealand. Panellists shared their thoughts on gender equality, integration, and inclusion, and how to achieve more equitable access to quality education. They also discussed the main priorities and focus of their institution in relation to SDG 4, and how they overcome challenges to achieve the SDG’s objectives.  

    Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao’s Kōrerorero webinar series is intended for academics, education agents and media in Latin America and New Zealand. It has been particularly effective in maintaining awareness of a New Zealand education while our borders are closed, while also contributing to discussions on important matters related to international education. Across the six episodes since its launch in 2020, more than 1,000 people have attended, with many subsequent views on YouTube.

  • Workshops on supporting international students’ mental health

    Monday 30 May 2022 at Helen Kitson Centre, Rangi Ruru Girls’ School, Christchurch

    Register here by 26 May.

     

    Monday 20 June 2022 at Lower Hutt Events Centre, Wellington

    Register here by 13 June. 

     

    About the workshop: 

    Culture shock, language barriers, isolation, loneliness, homesickness, separation from support groups, the loss of confidence — these are just a few of the challenges faced by many international students in New Zealand. Add to these differences in how different societies view, talk about and seek solutions for challenges relating to mental health, and we can see why it is difficult for schools to support their students effectively when they are struggling. 

    This workshop will be jointly facilitated by Ivan Yeo, Deputy Director of Asian Family Services and Jennifer Kirkham, PLD Operations Manager of SIEBA. The goal is to explore what might be going on for students struggling with their mental health, and how providers might best support them.  The workshop will be highly interactive with a focus on sharing and discussion of the topics provided, guided by the facilitators.

  • From the Chief Executive: Stepping up the promotion of international education

    We’re about to embark on education-focussed travel that will include three of our important markets for international education – the United States, Chile and Brazil. As part of the trip, the delegation led by Education Minister Chris Hipkins will attend NAFSA, the world’s biggest international education event, held in Denver, Colorado.

    This trip will also feature the launch of ENZ’s amazing new global marketing campaign on 31 May 2022 at NAFSA – there’s a sneak preview in this issue of E-News.

    I’m also delighted to let you know that planning is well underway for the 29th New Zealand International Education Conference (NZIEC) to be held in August. To ensure we reach the widest possible audience at a critical time for the rebuild of the industry, NZIEC 2022 will be delivered in a virtual format this year, at no cost to attendees.

    Following on from the government’s announcements earlier this month on changes to immigration settings and the restart of student visa applications from 31 July 2022, there have been two further announcements that are important for the international education sector. These relate to the outcome of recent consultation on enrolling international fee-paying students under Year 9, and a refresh of the New Zealand International Education Strategy.  

     

    International students up to Year 9  

    The government has decided to make no change to the ability of international students to enrol in New Zealand primary and intermediate schools. This follows earlier consultation on possible options to restrict the enrolment of international students below Year 9, which closed in March 2022.

    This announcement has been widely welcomed, and demonstrates the government listened closely to feedback received from the sector and other interested parties. It’s good news that we can resume welcoming young students and groups to New Zealand schools across all age levels as our borders reopen.    

     

    New Zealand International Education Strategy (NZIES)

    The existing NZIES dates back to 2018, and the impact of Covid-19 and the changed global education environment mean another look at the strategy is timely.  Consultation on a refreshed NZIES 2022-2030 is underway, and I encourage you to provide your views and feedback before consultation closes on 24 June 2022.

    The draft refreshed NZIES 2022-2030 reflects the government’s continued commitment to international education, and the need for us to focus on building back better from the pandemic. It includes two phases. The first phase is about rebuilding and recovery – promoting New Zealand’s education brand and supporting student recruitment.  The second phase aims to build capability and investment in a more diverse and resilient international education sector.

    As a package, the recent government decisions including the immigration rebalance mean we now have increased certainty about the operating environment for the international education sector. We look forward to working with you to rebuild our international education sector to be a major contributor to New Zealand. And we look forward to students from all around the world enjoying the benefits of a New Zealand education, and New Zealanders enjoying the benefits these students bring to our communities.

     

    He rā ki tua – better times are coming.

  • Alumni events in China build ties with NZ

    More than 100 past, current and future students, as well as representatives from China’s Ministry of Education and six other key government agencies, attended an event in Beijing on 8 July 2022, organised by Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao.  

    Two former international students played a major role in the success of this event.  

    Chinese author Ma Boyong gave a keynote speech. Ma Boyong was a student at Waikato University, and today he is a well-known novelist, columnist and blogger, whose work has been adapted into successful TV drama series. His achievements have been recognised with the People's Literature Prize, one of China's most prestigious honours.  He told guests how his New Zealand study inspired his creativity, his desire to be a writer, and led to love – he met his wife in New Zealand! 

    Reggie Li, who trained at the New Zealand School of Travel and Tourism and later worked extensively at top restaurants and hotels in New Zealand as a chef, is the New Zealand Embassy’s executive chef.  Reggie gave salmon cooking demonstrations to the assembled guests. The demo was interactive and put a spotlight on searing/cooking salmon with a blowtorch.  The salmon was then enjoyed by the guests.  New Zealand-imported Aoraki salmon is often served at embassy events as it has a strong reputation in China, promotes sustainability and is, of course, loved by Chinese. 

    In Guangzhou on 10 July 2022, a similar number of guests gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between New Zealand and China, and the festival of Matariki, the Māori New Year.   

    Organised by ENZ with support from other government agencies (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, and Tourism New Zealand), the 2022 NZ Guangzhou Community Mid-Year Event brought together close to 100 agents, past, present and future students and New Zealand expats. The event included a screening of the award-winning film Whale Rider. 

    “Events like this help us maintain relationships with our alumni students, connect new students with alumni, and strengthen people’s connections with New Zealand,” says Miranda Herbert, ENZ’s Director based in China. 

    “It is also very rewarding to showcase the benefits of a New Zealand education and hear about its impact on the lives and careers of former students.” 

    Interested in other upcoming events with Greater China?  

    The 2022 New Zealand – China Early Childhood Education Symposium will be held on 23 September and New Zealand-based participants can register here to join virtually.  

    In October New Zealand will have a national pavilion at the China Education Expo 2022. For more information on these events, please refer to the ENZ Events Page. 

  • Innovation at Mission New Zealand

    With support from the product and service diversification pilot funding round led by Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ), the new platform is being developed and managed by The Mind Lab.

    Mission New Zealand offers a fully immersive and distinctively New Zealand experience. It focuses on the key differences that New Zealand offers and the benefits of being part of a movement for positive change. A range of shorter learning opportunities are grouped under four themes that reflect New Zealand’s progressiveness and values: culture, tech innovation, creativity and sustainability.

    Visitors to the site will be greeted by the world’s first 360° virtual pōwhiri, starting at the gates of Ngāti Whātua Orākei Marae in Auckland. They will experience being called onto the marae with a karanga and stepping onto the grounds to be welcomed by members of Ngāti Whātua.

    A screenshot from Mission New Zealand's virtual pōwhiri

    Personalised learning, with optional content and stories, insights and other material will help learners experience what makes New Zealand unique.

    The new platform is designed to address the increasing global demand for connecting with a visible cause, for online learning options, and for shorter and more flexible courses.

    There are still opportunities for New Zealand education providers interested in being part of this opportunity, before the marketing campaign gets underway over the next two months. The site will enable providers to test the demand for their short courses and micro-credentials in areas of New Zealand specialist expertise.

    This project is part of ENZ’s programme to encourage the development of new products and services in the international education sector, supported by the COVID Response and Recovery Fund.

    The Mind Lab was founded in 2013 and has a strong background in innovation, online delivery and building community connections, including relationships with iwi and Māori-led organisations.
