Elite Management School (EMS) began as an English language provider and in 2008 commenced delivery of business diplomas level 5 and 6. The courses have been designed in partnership with local employers to give graduates career-ready skills. Today EMS focuses on producing career-ready graduates, and its programmes consistently meet employment targets. The school also delivers Intensive Literacy and Numeracy training and English for Migrants to domestic students and NZCEL classes for international students. EMS provides learner support from a learner’s entry to exit and beyond in a wide range of areas such as arrival on campus, orientation and induction, and individual learning and career plans. Staff are supportive, responsive and caring, and relevant personal support is available to meet the language and cultural needs of international learners.
