Help us thank New Zealand’s education partners in Japan

Education New Zealand will be holding series of exciting events for agents, alumni and education partners in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka in September 2013.

As part of a programme to explore greater opportunities for the New Zealand education industry in Japan.

The alumni networking function will acknowledge and show our appreciation for the informal “ambassadorial” role alumni undertake on behalf of New Zealand education. We will also be encouraging alumni to join the recently launched New Zealand Educated Alumni LinkedIn group where they will be able to network with fellow alumni and keep in touch with events and activities of interest.

The agent seminars will recognise the work agents do on behalf of New Zealand education and show the agents our appreciation. The seminars will also inform agents of any immigration updates and changes (there will be someone from Immigration New Zealand in attendance) and let them know about the agent e-learning that will be launched in the next few months. A preview of this will be available at the event. 

It is hoped that these activities will  further nignite agents’ interest in, and enthusiasm for, promoting New Zealand as an education destination.

To ensure we reach the greatest number of agents and alumni, we would like your suggestions for who you would like us to invite.

For the dates for each event, and a form where you can enter the names and contact information of those you’d like to be sent an invitation, click here.

In completing this form, you will be assured of early notification of when registration opens for these events.

As well agents and alumni, we know that many New Zealand education institutions have active and fruitful partnerships with fellow institutions in Japan. We are hoping to host such people at a ‘thank you’ lunch where we can show our gratitude for the very important role they play in fostering a lively education exchange between our two countries. Details about the lunch will be provided at a later date.

These events are a great opportunity for you to show how much you value your education partners and advocates in Japan.

Thank you in advance for help make these events the best they can be.

What's in it for me?
