As of 2018 the New Zealand Government will be making your first year of tertiary study free of charge, and this includes studying with Te Rito Maioha ECNZ.  Sign up to one of our courses and take advantage of this great new opportunity to enter the early childhood profession. 

With increased funding coming to centres with 100% of their staff as fully trained teachers there’s more reason than ever to upskill now.

Student Fee Protection

Te Rito Maioha Early Childhood New Zealand (ECNZ) operates a static trust as our mechanism for the protection of student fees. The Trustee of this Trust is Staples Rodway Wellington Trustees ECNZ Ltd, located in Wellington. This arrangement has been accepted by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority as meeting the requirements of the Education Act 1989 and the Student Fee Protection Rules 2013.

The Student Fee Protection Mechanism protects student fees and is triggered if ECNZ undergoes a “Course Closure Event”. A course closure event is where ECNZ is not able to deliver the programme of study for which the student has made payment. Should this occur, ECNZ will publish contact details of the Trustee on our website and provide additional information on your entitlements, documentation requirements to obtain a refund and detail of any meetings arranged for students to attend.
