NZQA cancels registration of Excellent International Academy

07 Feb 2018

Excellent International Academy (EIA) offered the New Zealand Certificate in Foundation Study and Career Preparation, General English and IELTS Preparation Course (Level 3), New Zealand Diploma in Business (Leadership and Management) (Level 5) and New Zealand Diploma in Business (Leadership and Management) (Level 6).

EIA has recently been subject to quality assurance activity by NZQA that identified serious concerns in relation to educational performance and compliance with NZQA rules. This has resulted in NZQA cancelling EIA’s registration as a private training establishment (PTE).

Deputy Chief Executive Quality Assurance, Dr Grant Klinkum, said the priority is ensuring students are supported at this time and that there are clear options available to these students for their next steps while the process is being worked through.

NZQA’s role is to ensure that quality education is delivered to students and that New Zealand qualifications are robust, credible, and internationally recognised.

Where there is evidence that quality education has not been delivered, and correct assessment has not taken place, NZQA will intervene and take strong action to ensure the integrity of education outcomes.

If students have any queries or concerns they can contact NZQA on or 0800 697 296.
