JUST IN: Trainee teachers protest college fee hike

Zimstar News

Dozens of trainee students at Belvedere Teachers College are protesting a fee hike imposed by the tertiary education institution which has also reportedly refused to accept payment plans proposed by those who have not paid.

Currently, the college is demanding payments of up to ZWL38 200 from campus students and $21 100 from day scholars.

Student teachers are apprehensive they are set to write exams early October, yet they are still being barred from attending lessons and access to some learning material.

The students were also set to march to Higher and Tertiary Education minister Professor Amon Murwira’s office to have their concerns addressed.
