ENZ is subsidising the cost of Enroller’s digital platform for schools for the remainder of 2021 and 2022.
“ENZ is aware that international student departments at schools are busier than ever, managing the increased pastoral care needs of students still in New Zealand,” said ENZ general manager – Partnerships & Marketing, Paul Irwin.
“Our aim is to support more schools to continue digital marketing, managing enquiries and applications quickly and easily.
“This partnership will also help ensure that the schools sector is prepared for when international students return to New Zealand.”
“We’re excited to be able to offer additional support to schools and continue the work that ENZ and Enroller began in 2018,” CEO and co-founder of Enroller, Michael Barry.
Research that ENZ and Enroller completed in 2019 found that 90% of schools surveyed indicated the platform was a more efficient way of processing student enrolments – saving between two and three hours work per student enrolment.
“The extension of this research project will enable multi-tasking international departments”
Some 70% of participating education agents said Enroller made it easier to submit and manage applications to NZ schools.
“The NZ school sector is hurting – it has been a long and uncertain 12 months for many,” Barry added.
“The extension of this research project will enable multi-tasking international departments, and their education agency partners, the additional digital capability and resource that they need to manage the rebuild of their international student roll, cost-effectively.”
