First year free!
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 Deloitte Private, 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.
