Private tertiary institutions worried about government support fund

From Morning Report, 6:17 am on 6 August 2020

English language schools and other private tertiary institutions are warning a ten-million-dollar pandemic support fund for their sector won't go far.

They say they are laying off staff because no new foreign students are allowed into the country and they have to hibernate until students are allowed to return.

Darren Conway from English New Zealand told RNZ education correspondent, John Gerritsen, the support fund should focus on the organisations that are most reliant on foreign enrolments.
