Chairman

Giles Brooker

Giles has had a long history of involvement with India dating back over several generations of his family.  Over the last few years he has observed with interest the growth of Indian students seeking to study in New Zealand and how some of them struggle to find an institution that really meets their needs.

He established Giles Brooker Education in India to assist students find institutions and programmes that will provide them with a good education and a very supportive learning environment.  Many of these institutions have been very successful in offering programmes to New Zealand domestic students and have only recently opened their doors to international students.

Giles has over 42 years' experience in tertiary education both in teaching and administration (Lycee Joffre (Montpellier, France), Scots College, Wellington Polyctechnic, Auckland Institute of Technology; University of Auckland) and government agencies (Ministry of Education (NZ), New Zealand Qualifications Authority, National Council for Vocational Qualifications (UK), Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (UK))

Giles' initial academic interests were in linguistics, languages and inter-cultural communication.  He is a fluent speaker of English and French and has varying levels of competency in several other languages.  He has a strong affinity with migrant and indigenous communities. Career opportunities led to considerable involvement in tourism education, curriculum development and evaluation, organisational evaluation and dispute resolution.

Giles was elected a Fellow of Governance New Zealand and the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators in 2006 and serves on the New Zealand branch Education Committee and Assessment Review Panel.

Because of his experience with the institutions and his long experience as an educator, as a government official, in both New Zealand and the UK, and as an independent evaluator and developer of tertiary education programmes, Giles is able to deal with institutions to ensure that their programmes continue to be of value to students, and also to develop new programmes if new needs are found.
