ICL Education Group wins at 2016 Export New Zealand awards
Education New Zealand congratulates ICL Education Group (ICL) on its recent success at the 2016 Export NZ Awards held in Auckland.
ICL won the award for Endace Services Exporter of the Year 2016. This award recognises excellence in building extraordinary and sustainable export growth, working in the areas of ICT, tourism, education and consultancy services.
“I would like to salute the dedication and focus of the 100 ICL staff who have achieved this award, and of whom we are immensely proud. We are particularly honoured that the judges have highlighted the ethics and professionalism of our Group, principles which we believe ultimately underwrite our success,” says Ewen Mackenzie-Bowie, Chairman of ICL Education Group.
The award is one of seven categories, which have been held annually since 2009 to inspire New Zealand exporters to expand their businesses and grow internationally.
ICL Education Group includes ICL Graduate Business School, Auckland English Academy, Bridge International College and New Horizon College.
The judges were impressed with ICL’s approach to marketing, with a broad spread of target markets, and the introduction of new courses to meet identified demand, particularly at a post-graduate level.
It was clearly evident that ICL is a strong contributor to New Zealand’s success in continuing to attract fee-paying international students. ICL’s research culture and policy of employing and retaining highly qualified staff was also seen as a positive factor.
