  • 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 sarah.stabler@enz.govt.nz. 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.

    Provider categories are either Category 1, 2, 3 or 4 and are reflective of the findings of the institutions most recent External Evaluation and Review.

    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.

    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.

  • Say hello to the new, improved Brand Lab

    Over the past quarter, ENZ's marketing team has been developing a new and improved Brand Lab system – due to go live tomorrow, Thursday 11 May. 

    ENZ Content Marketing Project Manager, Laura Lingard, said the site has many new features, all of which are much more user-friendly than the previous Brand Lab.

    “The new site has been designed with the user front of mind, even giving guidance around the different types of assets and how these can be used to promote the benefits of a New Zealand education,” said Laura.

    The new Brand Lab also has improved search functionality to make it easier for users to find what they’re looking for – as well as a suite of new assets including translated videos and artwork. 

    “The Brand Lab is a useful resource for providers to promote their individual education offering, and it’s also a way for the sector to work together to build a consistent brand story about New Zealand ,” said Laura.

    What’s new about the Brand Lab?

    • New range of videos (across different markets and languages)

    • New range of brand imagery and stories (Think New)

    • New range of university imagery

    • 30 new student stories (case studies)

    • New infographics (for social media)

    • Translated sector stories

    • Users can download low resolution or high resolution versions of images, and preview videos before downloading

    • Users can share assets between users and send assets to non-users

    • Users have increased access to a wider range of assets without needing to request permission 

    All current Brand Lab users will be sent an invitation to the new site on Thursday 11 May – you will need to re-register due to the system being completely new. Please take the time to complete your registration (it’s quick!) so that you can access the new site.

    If you can’t wait until tomorrow (we know how eager you must be to take a look!) you can sign up now by going to thebrandlab.enz.govt.nz 

  • Alumni gather in Tokyo for the launch of NZACJ

    ENZ celebrated the launch with a reception in Tokyo, joined by nearly 100 NZACJ members as well as Ambassador Stephen Payton.

           Tip:
    • Alumni stories are a powerful way to promote an authentic study experience, and offer practical advice to prospective students

    ENZ’s Senior Market Development Manager – Japan, Misa Kitaoka, and NZACJ’s Executive Director, Tomoyuki Amano, outlined ways members can support local education fairs, and give career counselling and guidance on university admissions for high school students.

    Misa was pleased with the turnout and level of interest and support from the members.

    “It was a fantastic occasion to connect former students of New Zealand and Kiwi residents of Japan, who share the same passion for promoting New Zealand as a study destination,” said Misa.

    “Some of our guests travelled from Fukuoka, Osaka and Sendai to attend the reception and I was very inspired by their enthusiasm.”

    Ambassador Peyton acknowledged the Japanese and Kiwi guests in the room, including members of the Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan, Kea, the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) programme and the Prime Minister’s Scholars for Asia, for their contribution in promoting New Zealand in Japan.

    Misa said the highlight of the evening was keynote speaker Sotaro Kawada, who received the dux award at Garin College in 2016 despite speaking very little English when he moved to Nelson five years ago. He will start a Bachelor’s degree in business at University of Edinburgh in September.

    “Sotaro emphasised the opportunities and assistance he received at Garin College, which gave him the self-confidence to achieve his academic and personal goals,” said Misa.

    “We had a videographer film the event and look forward to sharing these inspiring alumni stories soon.”
