The ABC informs us that CIT’s in a bit of trouble as the government tightens up on dodgy foreign student enrollments:
The CIT caters to more than 1,400 overseas students, mostly in vocational subjects, with diplomas in areas like community work, and hospitality.
The new Skilled Occupation List, which begins today, will make it much more difficult for international students in such vocational areas to gain permanent residency.
It’s a terrible thing when what is supposed to be an educational facility serving the people of Canberra is forced to re-think it’s end-run around immigration laws.
God knows they might need to start training Canberrans rather than figure out ways to keep downward pressure on our wages.
Even more terrible is the ABC hiring sub-editors who think the CIT is a university.
