Title: Closedown of Excellent International Academy
Research About: A business school that provided mainly to students from India shut down.
Case Scenario: Excellent international Academy offered the New Zealand certificate in foundation study and career preparation, General English and IELTS preparation course (level 3), New Zealand diploma in business (level 5) and New Zealand diploma in business in (level 6). EIA has recently been subject to quality assurance activity by NZQA that identified serious concern in relation to educational performance and compliance with NZQA rules. This has resulted in NZQA cancelling EIA’s registration as a private training establishment (PTE) (The PIE News 2018).
Excellent International Academy in Auckland, was deregistered on January 26 after the NZ Qualifications Authority (NZQA) found “concerns about the provider’s English language proficiency testing and compliance with assessment and moderation requirements in relation to the NZ Diploma in Business. About 15 staff have lost their jobs and NZQA has advised the academy’s 145 students from Asia, South America and Saudi Arabia to apply for places at other schools (The PIE News 2018).
Ethical Issues: The Academy was established in 2003 as an English school by the directors of Auckland Paul and Ingrid Goodenough, and in 2010 was sold to Chinese investor Yen Wei. In April 2013 NZQA said that it depends on academic performance of the academy but still not complete in the self-assessment capacity. Iranian born Jazbani, who was the executive director of Advance training academy started the course for excellent academy purchase in August 2013 and has done international exam every 12 weeks. In the follow up assessment in July 2014 it has been started that NZQA in its assessment, is was confident in it academy performance. However Jazbani expanded the school to present commercial diploma courses in 2016. She said that NZQA told her in May 2017 that they were not happy with the quality of assessment for business courses at the end of 2016, but she said this was because the courses were new.Mission Statement: Excellent international academy’s mission is a committed school committed excellence in education, is to provide students with challenging education to be active, emotional and lifelong learning, in turn, providing care, reflections, open minds, members of our community and the world at large (Fyple NewZealand,2018)
Vision Statement: Excellent international academy values everyone respects the right to research, manufacture and obtain, because we do the educational heritage of students to create a positive impact on our communities and the world (Fyple New Zealand, 2018)
Innovation Decision making Process: Jazbani appointed a new academic manager Robin Bailey, who said she has made changes immediately. Robin said in response to your draft report, we have prepared an urgent action plan, which we will immediately work by the end of June. She has never seen evaluation or moderation since March. Robin said that other big player in international education were allowed to continue the business but they believed that NZQA has target the answer as an immigrant and a women. It seems that the number of women belonging to women is very small at least five women’s multicultural schools have been closed last year.
NZQA deputy chief executive officer Dr Grant Klinkum said that the authority has worked under the education act. He noted the decision of the high court that the NQZA to cancel the register of New Zealand national college on December 19. The Decision was delayed for judicial review. The role of NZQA is to make sure that students gets quality education and New Zealand’s capabilities have been recognized strong, trustworthy and internationally. Where there is no evidence that quality education has not been provided and a valid assessment has not been made the NZQA will intervene and take firm action to ensure the integrity of the educational results. Excellent international academy is the fifth class organization that was cancelled last year (NZME. publishing limited, 2018).
The first step is situation assessment: According to the law of 1989 legal action has been taken. When it does not follow a non-signatory Tio or signatory law NZQA rules under section 253 of the act is prepared and practice international student’s western care code. NZQA the academic code has the legal authority to use different legal proceedings, if applicable. Whenever possible NZQA is known to follow the organisation’s informal functioning in the first instance for example through a request for a formal, formal paperwork or action plan. If any formal approach fails or more serious or student public can immediately be extended to the legal proceedings of the matter of violation of the risk (NZME. publishing limited, 2018).

The reason for information will be disclosed to them with the goal that they will not progress toward becoming respondents. Every single moral issue, for example, security act 1993 will be given thought. NZQA will interviewed with current stakeholders. It was impact on 145 students and 15 staffs. About 15 staff have lost their jobs and NZQA has advised the academy’s 145 students from Asia, South America and Saudi Arabia to apply for places at other school (NZME. publishing limited, 2018).
To conclude, the operational problem I have researched in this organization and I found that the organisation was not compliance with NZQA rules and regulation. The main operational problem in this organization is related with assessments and staff which are not enough qualified for teaching. To conclude my objective was to find the main operational problem of the company that was affecting the performance of the company.
