  • ENZ workshops in September

    cropped airport2

    Workshop 1: Students’ view from their window travelling along the digital freeway

    Technology is changing the way education providers engage with potential students. Placing you in the driver’s seat on the digital freeway, you will experience first-hand what international students see as they race toward their destination. As with any road trip, there are detours, attractions and temptations that can change the direction.

    This workshop will use a segmentation model to identify what tools are available and what skills are required, and give examples of how education providers, at various stages of digital maturity, can leverage them for success.

    Target audience: Participants involved in international strategy, marketing, recruitment and admissions.


    • Identify how your organisation is segmented and what tools are appropriate
    • Gain exposure to example initiatives that best-practice providers have used to improve their student recruitment efficiency
    • Connect with other practitioners about their experiences and identify opportunities for further exploration.

    This workshop will empower participants to get beyond the great firewall and embrace digital and social media platforms in China. It will showcase best practice case studies and how best to engage prospective students.

    Target audience: Marketing and recruitment professionals and student services staff. It is best suited to those who already have some knowledge of Chinese social media.

  • Register for China vocational education forum

    The forum brings together government agencies, and industry and education leaders in technical and vocational education from New Zealand and China.

    The aim is for all those involved to share their experiences in developing training institutions, strengthen collaboration between the two countries, and plan the development of model programmes in the sector.  

    This is the 6th forum which has been held annually in either China or New Zealand under the auspices of the China-New Zealand Vocational Education and Training Model Programme.      

    With at least 52 senior leaders from higher vocational education institutions in China set to attend, ENZ Regional Director China & North Asia, Adele Bryant, says the event is a unique opportunity for New Zealand vocational and technical education leaders to demonstrate how their institutions are fostering critical and creative thinking in students.

    “With ‘The Entrepreneurial Institution’ theme, this year’s forum is a great platform to showcase New Zealand’s strengths in encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship,” Adele said.

    “It’s a fantastic opportunity to share ideas, network and form relationships with leaders from China at a time when they are increasingly looking to New Zealand for solutions.”

    A range of leaders in vocational education in New Zealand – from CEOs and International Directors to anyone involved in developing innovation and entrepreneurship strategies at vocational training institutions – are invited to present at the forum.

    Registration is limited to 50 delegates from New Zealand, with early bird registrations closing 31 August.

  • Are you making the most of IntelliLab?

    ENZ’s Intelligence Manager Andrew McPhee encourages all New Zealand education providers working in international education to make the most of this resource.

    “International education professionals want to be as informed as possible before making important decisions – IntelliLab should be your go-to source,” he says.

    IntelliLab is free, easy to access and provides the latest information on student numbers and trends, market information, industry valuations, research, and insights on developments such as the recent downturn in new Chinese students, to help industry make informed decisions.

    “It also includes exclusive content – while the summary dashboards and most infographics are available for anyone to download, the reports and insights are only available to registered New Zealand government officials and international education providers.

    “The interactive numbers tools in particular are popular with users, such as TED (The Enrolments Data), as it enables providers to analyse student numbers over the past five years by their key markets, sectors, and region,” Andrew says.

    Christchurch NZ Programme Manager Bree Loverich says the data from IntelliLab is a key source of support for the work she does at a regional level.

    “We are increasingly asked to provide data insights at a moments’ notice for various stakeholders and to support business cases for our student visitor activities, major events, talent attraction and retention.

    “The support and quality of data provided by ENZ’s intelligence team is outstanding. They have always provided quality insights and analysis to support our efforts to make informed decisions and projects that benefit industry and the student body.

    “They have also made it possible for me to articulate the value of the industry to key influencers in the region. It’s a service that the region has come to trust and we could not be successful without it.”

    Recently added publications include:

    • Monthly visa summaries and the interactive visa tool updates
    • New Zealand Education system at a glance (OECD and MOE updates)
    • Regional student number data cubes
    • Economist Intelligence Unit country, region, and city reports
    • 2018 Student numbers interactive tool
    • 2018 Enrolments by level and field (SDR providers only)
    • Market update webinars
    • Viet Nam schools sector implementation plan
    • China market trends -FSV decline report

    • 2018 valuation of education exports from New Zealand
    • Valuation infographics
    • Regional infographics
    • Sector factsheets
    • Market factsheets
