Some very worrying news from the federal government concerning VET Fee help has been released this week. Many of the practical performance courses offered in this great city of ours, including Elite Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Dance, Diploma of Musical Theatre and Advanced Diploma of Musical theatre and Commercial Dance have now been excluded from the Fee Help structure.
At ADPI we would love to give our young performers every opportunity, as would all our friends who run similar courses and schools throughout Brisbane, including courses in Music, Acting, Circus and other practical art forms. Unfortunately it now appears none of these highly regarded and excellent schools can help students through governmental loans to reach their dreams and aspirations to become professional performers.
If you would like to express your concerns about this exclusion, VET FEE Help have asked for feedback at the following address. You can have your say by emailing VETStudentLoans@education.gov.au.
Feedback must be received by 23 October 2016.
