Students running petition to reinstate Training Incentive Allowance

The New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations has launched a nationwide petition calling on students and the public to register their opposition to the axing of the Training Incentive Allowance (TIA) that supports students on the Domestic Purposes Benefit to retrain.

NZUSA co-president Jordan King says that the government has emphasised on numerous occasions the importance of having people access further and higher education to improve skills and create pathways into the workforce.

“The Training Incentive Allowance has allowed so many people to do just that; there is no reason why it should be stopped now. We think that removing access to the TIA is a backward and ridiculous move.”

NZUSA has contacted over 500 community organisations, schools, unions and not-for-profit groups seeking their support, including Finsec members. Click on the link below to download the petition form.
