That’s a wrap: Highlights from New Zealand Partners’ Workshop Week

The recent New Zealand Partners Workshop Week (NZPWW) was a highly-successful, first-of-its-kind event for ENZ. The five-day virtual showcase brought together more than 2,700 stakeholders from across the Asian region to collaborate on building the future of the international education sector – to benefit New Zealand and our global partners.

The week helped bring together education industry mainstays and influencers from New Zealand and Asia. Together they deliberated on partnership models and discussed ways to prepare and strengthen joint relationships that will navigate the future of the education sector.

ENZ’s new initiative with FutureLearn was also launched to international education stakeholders this week as an example of how New Zealand is diversifying its education offering for those who can’t travel here. This initiative provides online courses from a range of New Zealand education providers on a shared platform to more than 15 million learners worldwide.

Held between 14-18 June, NZPWW was ENZ’s first ever large-scale virtual event targeting Asian government stakeholders, education institutes, agents and media. The week contained 23 hours of content including 234 sessions, more than 40 of which were streamed live.

Minister of Education Hon. Chris Hipkins inaugurated the NZPWW with encouraging words, followed by a musical performance by Aotearoa icon Stan Walker.

“It’s clear to me that relationships formed through education over the years have kept New Zealand connected with you, with the world when travel has been limited,” Minister Hipkins said.

“We want to continue to strengthen these partnerships, and to form new ones.”

The Heads of Mission from India, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea and Japan also appeared in a live Q&A session with ENZ CE Grant McPherson.
