The Australia New Zealand Agent workshop held in Sydney in April was a great opportunity for agents and education institutions to connect and build global relationships.
Education New Zealand’s Channel Development Manager Kaye Le Gros presented the Think New brand and the New Zealand Education Story to agents in a seminar that showcased New Zealand. Immigration New Zealand also presented immigration updates at the seminar.
Almost 100 education institutions attended the three day workshop, including 44 from New Zealand, along with around 60 work and travel organisations and service providers.
Agents from 50 countries were there, all focused on sending students and youth travellers to our side of the world.
For the first time, Brazil was the top agent country, reflecting the popularity of New Zealand and Australia as study destinations for Brazilian students.
Next year’s workshop is coming to New Zealand – mark 28-30 April 2015 in your diary for the workshop at Sky City in Auckland. Kaye says this will be a great opportunity for regions and groups to consider familiarisation visits for agents visiting New Zealand in 2015.
