Symposium on offshore delivery, Wellington, Thursday 9 June
Do you deliver education products and services offshore? Are you considering venturing in to this aspect of international education and want to know more? Then come along to a one-day symposium in Wellington on Thursday 9 June to explore the opportunities, challenges and value offshore delivery presents.
Jointly hosted by Education New Zealand and Victoria University of Wellington, the symposium will be an opportunity to learn from local and international presenters about their experiences, and engage and share with colleagues in this specialised field. The programme will cover critical success factors, sustainable and collaborative models, quality assurance, explore markets and partners, and consider an online future.
Offshore delivery is a broad church, and includes the delivery of education through offshore campuses or partners, or via online courses.
Global opportunities for offshore education delivery abound, and a good number of New Zealand institutions and businesses are committed to developing their offshore ventures, especially in markets and niches where New Zealand is well-regarded.
In spite of this, it is estimated that only 3 percent of international students enrolled at New Zealand institutions are offshore, compared to 30 percent for Australia and over 50 percent for the UK.
If you are interested in coming along to the symposium please contact Business Development Manager Adele Bryant for a programme and registration details at: email@example.com or phone (04) 830 0810.
Budget update 2013
Education New Zealand Chief Executive Grant McPherson says the majority of the additional funding will be invested in growing awareness and preference for New Zealand as an international education destination in key markets, promoting New Zealand’s education services and products abroad, and supporting industry-led opportunities for growth.
Broadly, Education New Zealand will invest the funding in:
Broadening and intensifying our marketing activities in tier one and two target markets
Offering increased support to New Zealand international education providers and businesses to achieve greater growth.
Deepening our engagement with overseas education institutions and governments
Increasing the number of New Zealanders studying overseas by establishing new scholarships and encouraging the take up of existing scholarships.
“In addition to our own efforts, we will also continue to work with other government agencies to capitalise on all-of-government initiatives to market New Zealand internationally – ensuring a New Zealand education is promoted alongside tourism and other trade initiatives.”
Education New Zealand will continue to update industry throughout the year about where and how these additional resources are being invested, beginning with the release of our Statement of Intent in May. Following this, we will host a series of industry forums around the country to present our new Business Plan, which sets out Education New Zealand’s priorities for the next three years. These will be scheduled for late June/July and registration information will be sent soon.

Celebrating our education ties with Thailand
Students and their families were able to explore a variety of international study options available in New Zealand with 50 New Zealand institutions providing high-quality representation and advice on the New Zealand education offering.
Ziena Jalil, Education New Zealand Regional Director South – South East Asia, said: “The fact that New Zealand education institutions have visited Thailand every year for 20 years to demonstrate the benefits of studying with them in New Zealand, illustrates our long-term commitment to Thailand and to our Thai partners.”
“This year’s theme for the fair was “New Experiences, New Ideas” and it was important to have the full range of New Zealand institutions and sectors to show the true spirit of New Zealand where new thinking is celebrated and where there are multiple opportunities.”
“With more than 3,000 Thai students studying in New Zealand this year, we are already providing high quality education and life-changing experiences for many Thai students” said Ziena.
Over 400 people attended the fair representing an increase of seven percent from last year, with pre-event publicity including media releases and a media briefing to encourage student registration and boost awareness of the fair.
The fair was the peak event for New Zealand education in Thailand following our August roadshow to Thai secondary schools in Bangkok, promoting New Zealand study opportunities and particularly English language courses. As part of the roadshows ENZ visited three schools and participated in an exhibition held by a network of Thai public schools offering English language programmes.
Education New Zealand also takes this opportunity to provide you with a resourcing update for Thailand. Recruitment is well underway for a new Marketing and Strategic Relationships Manager to be based in Bangkok. Sarah Stabler, ENZ’s Lead – Public Relations/Marketing (SSEA) is your contact point for all ENZ activity in Thailand so please contact Sarah if you have any Thailand related queries firstname.lastname@example.org. We wish to thank Gewalin Lertrasameewong, known to most of us as Nan, for her work over the years with ENZ and the former trust. Nan finished with ENZ on Friday 26 September and we wish her all the very best.
$10 million fund to support teaching of Asian languages
The first call for registration of interest is open from 13 October to 20 November 2014. All state and state-integrated schools can apply for funding under ALLiS.
The Government wants to increase second language learning for all students. As well as learning our national and official languages (English, Te Reo Māori, and New Zealand Sign Language), and Pasifika languages, New Zealand needs to increase the number of students learning Asian languages to support our growing trade and international relationships with key Asian countries.
ALLiS will support schools by setting up new, or strengthening existing, Asian language programmes. ALLiS funding is available for up to 90 schools or clusters of schools, with particular emphasis on those that establish language learning pathways from primary through to secondary schools. The fund will encourage greater collaboration amongst schools in partnership with external Asian Language and Cultural organisations. Once the funding ends, programmes are expected to be self-sustaining.
China, Japan and Korea are amongst our top five trading partners but the number of students learning these languages in our schools is relatively low compared to other international languages. In 2013, only two secondary schools offered Korean, fewer than 40 schools offered Mandarin Chinese, while Japanese was offered by 160 secondary schools.
For more information on the ALLiS programme and the funding process visit the Ministry of Education website.
Added ability for searching New Zealand education organisations
While there has always been the ability to find education organisations on the site by region and type, users can now also choose to filter organisations by their NZQA assigned provider category.
The enhancement to the website search function is in response to feedback from the education sector and improves access to information for international students and their agents looking to enrol in courses in New Zealand, as well as students, parents and the public wanting to know more about NZQA-registered tertiary providers.
The search function is available here and includes descriptions of each of the four provider categories.
A taste of New Zealand
Kicking off on 20 May, proceedings got underway with an invitation-only event, hosted by New Zealand’s Ambassador to the Philippines, David Strachan.
ENZ engaged a number of successful New Zealand alumni for media interviews and delivered a keynote presentation to a highly engaged crowd at the Glorietta Mall, Makati City venue.
The ENZ booth was particularly busy over the three days. A number of prospective students came prepared with specific questions, with many focusing on postgraduate study options.
The Experience NZ event also coincided with the celebration of 50 years of diplomatic ties between New Zealand and the Philippines.
This event was the latest in a series of in-market ENZ activities in the Philippines. It followed a successful agent seminar in Manila earlier this year.
A second agent seminar is being held in Cebu on 14 July and is now open for registration.
Event registrations closing Latin America. Registration for events in Brazil, Colombia and Chile close on Wednesday 27 January. Register now.
