The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) is seeking Suppliers that can provide high quality long term tertiary training and/or source and manage long-term and short-term training and work attachment opportunities to MFAT-funded Scholars.
We are seeking providers that have the capacity and capability to manage and support Scholars throughout the term of their study, in accordance with our New Zealand Scholarships Handbooks and the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016.
We are looking for innovative and fresh thinking to continue to develop a world class scholarship programme that supports New Zealand Scholarship and the wider New Zealand Aid programme outcomes.
This RFP seeks Suppliers for delivering both the full-time New Zealand-based tertiary scholarship scheme and the management of the short-term training scholarship scheme.
Both scholarship schemes provide levels of end-to-end support for international scholars; pre-departure briefings; travel to and from New Zealand, insurances, stipends, academic performance monitoring and pastoral care support while scholars are in New Zealand and re-integration support when they complete their study and return to their home country.
