Since the official announcement of fees free on 5 December, implementation has continued to prepare new learners for tertiary study in 2018. The TEC’s guidance and support systems for the sector are underway as we assist TEO’s navigate the ins and outs of fees-free. 

Initial guidance sessions for TEO’s began at the TEC on the day of the announcement and since then we have developed an online webinar for organisations to access. These webinars allow participants to type in queries during live sessions and receive an immediate response.

We will be rolling out the webinars incrementally with small numbers at each session to ensure they are efficient and hitting the mark for everyone. TEO’s can expect to receive an invitation to attend the webinars soon.

We have fees-free specialists at the end of the phone at our Sector Help desk (0800 601 301). They should be able to guide TEO’s through the fees-free process if required.  

So far TEO’s are confident with the guidance and support on offer. We’ll continue to monitor this closely into the New Year.

The TEC is committed to continuing to streamline our processes to make things easy for TEO’s as we move into 2018. We welcome your feedback at any time.
