English New Zealand is pleased to announce the election of Wayne Dyer as the new Chairman of English New Zealand.

Wayne is Principal of Auckland English Academy and the wider ICL Education Group, which also includes two other English New Zealand member schools, New Horizon College and Bridge International College.

He has been involved in the English language teaching industry for the better part of 30 years, working in Spain, the UK, Turkey, Australia and New Zealand and has held senior academic and leadership roles in both public sector institutions and private language schools.

Wayne is looking forward to assuming the role of Chairman at a time when the future of English New Zealand is looking bright:

“English New Zealand schools had growth of approximately 20% in student numbers, weeks and tuition fee revenue in 2016. 

 Our membership also grew and is increasingly diverse.

Our reputation for quality remains outstanding and all English New Zealand member schools must meet rigorous English New Zealand Standards over and above NZQA requirements.

English New Zealand’s leadership in the sector is widely recognised. It is vital that we continue to work with government to ensure the right policy settings to promote growth in the industry.”
