Vinne Schifferste in, Director Language Testing for Pearson, said: “Pearson is proud to achieve INZ recognition.


“Pearson Test of English Academic is a secure English language test that enables test-takers to access their scores quickly.


“We are also approved by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection for all visa tiers, so the New Zealand Government’s approval further consolidates PTE Academic as the fast growing secure test for visa applications.”


David Barnett, Managing Director of Pearson Australia and New Zealand said: “For many years applicants from non-English speaking countries, such as India, China, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore were limited in their choice of tests to prove their English language proficiency.


“While our test is academically challenging it is based on the real life English migrants need. The test provides a seamless user experience, from booking, testing, through to receiving results making the process less stressful for applicants and organizations processing a test taker’s application.


“Pearson looks forward to assisting the New Zealand government with recruiting skilled migrants to their workforce.


“The computer-based test uses cutting edge technology to ensure score reliability, and integrity of the testing process. It also offers the fastest score reporting in the market, with test takers receiving their results typically within five business days.”
