The New Zealand Qualifications Authority and World Education Services Partner on Qualifications Recognition for Migrants with International Education
WELLINGTON, New Zealand, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and World Education Services (WES) have signed an agreement to streamline qualifications assessment for migrants to New Zealand who hold credentials from another country. Under the agreement, WES will provide qualification verification services to immigration applicants to New Zealand.
“NZQA is delighted to work with WES to ensure a more efficient process for recognising the educational qualifications of those who want to make New Zealand home,” said NZQA Chief Executive Dr Grant Klinkum. “WES has been verifying academic credentials for decades, and we’ll leverage this experience to the benefit of New Zealand and our newest residents.”
The new WES Global Records Verification Report for NZQA is designed to expedite services for individuals who qualify for resident visas under the country’s skilled migrant category. This is part of a broader push to strengthen the nation’s economy. As New Zealand’s designated national education information centre and competent recognition authority, NZQA is instrumental in ensuring that the effort is successful.
“WES is honoured to partner with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority by offering a WES Global Records Verification Report that will enable migrants to more rapidly join the country’s workforce,” said Esther Benjamin, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of WES. “For nearly 50 years, WES has assessed international academic credentials, and that experience has taught us how vital verification is for people seeking to contribute their skills to new countries and communities. It has also taught us that migrant talent is critical to supporting economic growth.”
NZQA is a New Zealand Crown entity, tasked with ensuring that New Zealand qualifications are accepted as credible and robust, nationally and internationally. NZQA maintains effective liaison with overseas certifying and validating bodies in order to recognise overseas educational and vocational qualifications in New Zealand, and to achieve recognition of New Zealand educational and vocational qualifications overseas.
World Education Services (WES) is a non-profit social enterprise that supports the educational, economic, and social inclusion of immigrants, refugees, and international students. From evaluating academic credentials to shaping policy, designing programs, and providing philanthropic funding, we partner with a diverse set of organizations, leaders, and networks to uplift individuals and drive systems change.

PRESS RELEASE: SSH launches OpenSSH support service for multi-platform SSH environments6.6.2023 12:00:00 CEST | Press release
Helsinki, Finland - June 6, 2023 - To resolve various customer support problems regarding OpenSSH implementations, SSH has launched a support service for OpenSSH. As a result, customers benefit from high-quality SSH support services also for the open-source variant of SSH software. OpenSSH will be supported on Windows and Red Hat Linux platforms. The SSH protocol is a secure network protocol used to establish encrypted and secure remote connections and transfer data between different systems. OpenSSH is an open-source implementation of the SSH protocol. It was initially released as a free version of SSH’s Tectia product. As an open-source product, OpenSSH is popular, especially as SSH client software. However, its usage in critical corporate environments has been partly limited due to a lack of high-quality support services or support from a single source for all SSH clients. Without proper support services, customers often invest in in-house OpenSSH expertise, resulting in increased o
