New Management Has Progressively Addressed School’s Issues

New Management Has Progressively Addressed School’s Compliance Issues

The New Zealand School of Business and Government has been under new management over the last four months and compliance issues highlighted by NZQA and Immigration New Zealand have and are being progressively addressed.

In a statement the New Zealand School of Business and Government board of directors said it was confident it would be in a position to satisfy both NZQA and Immigration New Zealand by the December 13 deadline and that the Government regulators would be able to resume issuing visas to students for next year’s courses.

It was disappointing that the general manager of Immigration Peter Elms had lumped the New Zealand School of Business and Government into a raft of allegations that did not relate to this entity.

Mr Elms’ allegations of immigration fraud and exploitative employment arrangements have never been made to the New Zealand School of Business and Government and are completely untrue when linked to this organisation.

It is a breach of natural justice that both NZQA and Immigration have broadcast to the world these internal compliance issues without a chance to respond.

The issues that were identified by NZQA and Immigration NZ related to the operational procedures of the previous management team and largely related to the South Island campus in Christchurch, which is operated by a third party education provider under a delivery agreement with the New Zealand School of Business and Government.

No current New Zealand School of Business and Government students have been or will be disadvantaged by any action taken by either Immigration NZ or NZQA.
