Modest enrolment increase estimated for 2000

18 August 2000 Media statement

Modest enrolment increase estimated for 2000

While growth in tertiary student numbers are predicted to remain relatively modest overall this academic year, the Government wants to see higher levels of participation in post-school education and training, Associate Education (Tertiary Education) Minister Steve Maharey said today.

Mr Maharey was releasing Ministry of Education figures giving the forecasts made by tertiary education providers of equivalent fulltime student (EFTS) numbers for 2000 and the finalised number of EFTS places achieved in 1999. 160,282 EFTS were enrolled at tertiary institutions in 1999. The Ministry of Education reports that tertiary education institutions predict a 1.8% increase in EFTS enrolments in 2000, estimating 163,200 EFTS will enrol in tertiary study this year.

"While growth in student numbers this academic year will be modest overall, enrolment trends within the tertiary sector are predicted to vary this academic year. Wananga, polytechnic and college of education EFTS are predicted to increase by 61%, 3% and 4% respectively in 2000. University EFTS are predicted to be static, increasing by 0.1% this year.

“The Government wants to encourage greater levels of participation in tertiary education. The new measures we have already implemented such as freezing tertiary fees next year and stopping the accumulation of interest on loans while students are studying are making tertiary education more affordable to the many New Zealanders for whom cost had become a barrier to access," Steve Maharey said.

Gordon Campbell: On Another Reason To Loathe HR Departments (And On The Teachers Strike)

This morning’s news item about Police emergency call centre staff turning up for work while they’re sick – because they’re afraid their sick leave statistics will be used against them, and their jobs put in jeopardy – is not an isolated case...

Obviously, sick people shouldn’t be being treated by doctors and nurses who are themselves sick and potentially infectious. Similarly, Police emergency calls also need to be fielded by people who’re feeling alert, and on top of their game. More>>
