New Zealand offers an excellent education system. For example, in what the UK’s BBC called the “biggest ever global school rankings”, the OECD in 2015 put us comfortably in the top 20 nations for the quality of our schools.
New Zealand teenagers perform above the OECD average for reading literacy, maths and sciences, and all eight of our universities come in among the top 500 QS World University Rankings for 2017/18.
Laypeople are certainly impressed. New Zealand’s school quality ranked 9th in the 2017 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey – that’s ahead of Canada, The United States, United Kingdom and Australia.
You’ll be working in an education sector that is admired internationally – and in fact attracts over 130,000 students annually from overseas countries, making education our fourth biggest export earner.
