“Sue is an exemplary member of the industry and well known for her passion in representing the interests of the ELICOS sector and ensuring that this important sector receives the recognition it deserves,” stated the IEAA. “The industry as a whole has benefited from English Australia’s increased profile and the voice that this gives English language providers in discussions that impact their operations.”

Blundell – also on the advisory board of The PIE – has worked at English Australia for the past nine years and has helped significantly increase the association’s profile on a national level, leveraging greater governmental understanding of the needs and impact of the international education industry, which is the third-biggest export earner for the country.

David Matthews, Chair of EA, commented, “With this award, Sue has made yet another significant contribution to raising the profile of English Australia member colleges and the ELICOS sector more broadly.”
