$100,000 per course graduate!

Radio NZ reports:

The Education Ministry spent nearly $3 million on one course that enrolled just 42 students and had 29 graduates over two years.

Annual funding of $4.5m for the Te Kawa Matakura course was axed in last month’s Budget, with the government citing consistent underspends and low enrolments.

The level 5 diploma in the knowledge and customs of indidual iwi had just two intakes of students in Te Tai Tokerau in 2020 and 2021.

This is staggering. They spent $100,000 per graduate for a level 5 diploma course!
