Why couldn't Jennifer Johnston go to SIT - they have no fees
Jennifer Johnston wants to be a nurse and is moaning she can't get a training incentive allowance. She lives in Invercargill and started training two year's ago.
Jennifer is passing with an A-average and was expecting to embark on the nursing degree next year. But with the allowance discontinued and childcare, course materials, uniforms, transport and other costs not covered by a student loan, Jennifer has no idea if she can continue.Some may not know that the Southern Institute of Technology in Invercargill now has a zero fees scheme. Is there any reason, given that she lives in Invercargill, why Jennifer Johnston cannot go to SIT and study a batchelor of nursing there, and get a child care subsidy and an interest free loan for books and transport costs?
