Education New Zealand (ENZ) has today launched a new online tool to help international education providers recruit and support international students.

“The Skills Lab is a great new resource for smaller institutions who don’t have a lot of experience in this complex sector and will be particularly useful to newcomers to the industry,” says Grant McPherson, ENZ Chief Executive.

“At the heart of the Skills Lab are practical projects which walk providers through the steps they need to take to achieve sustainable growth.

“This project-based approach means that providers can choose the areas where they most need support and apply the new skills and processes immediately to their day-to-day operations as they work through a project.”

Currently there are 55 projects on the Skills Lab, with more planned for development in the future. Projects include a wide range of topics such as researching a market, undertaking competitor analysis, handling complaints on social media and using interpreters.

Strategic partnership

The Skills Lab has been designed in partnership with experienced international education providers. It responds to a need for comprehensive online support services to industry available anytime, anywhere in the world.

The Skills Lab sits alongside Education New Zealand’s Brand Lab, which provides institutions with downloadable branding and marketing collateral and resources to support their international marketing efforts.

“Initial feedback on the Skills Lab has been extremely positive, with providers indicating that it will be a valuable resource for training and upskilling the industry,” says Mr McPherson.

“Today’s launch is a starting point and we expect to add more specialised content to the project list, in partnership with industry.

“Education New Zealand is committed to increasing the capability of international education providers in this country, and to supporting continued growth in the industry.”

The Skills Lab was launched at the New Zealand International Education Conference 2016, being held today and tomorrow (18 – 19 August) in Auckland.
