Ensuring The Campbell Institute remains an industry leader in English language provision is behind a number of new senior appointments announced recently.
James Cruse has been named as National Academic Director. Based in Wellington, the TESOL specialist will be overseeing and developing Campbell’s academic programmes across both Auckland and Wellington campuses.
He said he hoped to consolidate The Campbell Institute’s reputation as one of New Zealand’s premier English language schools. “A large part of this will be greater implementation of educational technology to encourage learner-driven study through blended-learning solutions,” Mr Cruse said.
Also in Wellington, Guy Walker will take up the position of Campus Director of Studies. The capital city’s senior management team will be completed by the appointment of a new Campus Manager who will lead all non-teaching aspects of campus operations.
In Auckland, Aubrey Welsh will commence a new position as Campus Director of Studies bringing many years of international academic experience, most recently at Durham University in the UK.
Natalie Chambers has taken on the role of Campus Director, responsible for the operational side of the Auckland Campus.
Nigel Smith, Academic Operations Director for ACG Pathways, said Campbell’s new leadership structure would ensure a promising future for the English language school.
“I am very pleased that we have such a strong team in place to lead The Campbell Institute. Our students come to us from all over the world and trust us to provide them with high-quality English language tuition in a family atmosphere – I look forward to continuing this provision and hopefully making their experience even better in the future,” Mr Smith said.
The Campbell Institute celebrated its 15-year anniversary earlier this year with the opening of a new inner city campus in Newmarket, Auckland.
