Petition launched to stop proposed teachers fee hike

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 7 March 2022

Jake Angus is one of many teaching graduates right now wanting to keep teacher registration fees from being increased. 

The proposed increase is 113%, meaning a practising certificate renewal fee would cost $472.21, up from $220.80.

Jake has set up a petition calling for a vote of no confidence in the Teaching Council of Aotearoa New Zealand and so far 13 thousand people have signed.

They talk to Jesse about the impact the fees increases would have on the profession. 

More information on the petition here.
