The ELA welcomed a visit from Immigration New Zealand and the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) teams last month. Representatives from Immigration New Zealand were given a tour of the ELA’s official PTE Academic test centre to showcase our secure testing facilities.
The ELA’s test centre examined over 3,000 candidates in 2018 for either the PTE Academic English language test or professional industry certification, with the introduction of Pearson VUE testing in November last year. As Pearson VUE tests become more widely available in New Zealand, there is an exciting opportunity for greater collaboration between industry stakeholders to ensure the ELA continues to deliver the best testing experience for all candidates.
We look forward to continuing to work closely with both Pearson and Immigration New Zealand in 2019.
