Training provider says Immigration NZ wrong about it

9:02 pm on 26 November 2012

A private training establishment being investigated by Immigration New Zealand for what the agency calls serious breaches says it has done nothing wrong.

The New Zealand School of Business and Government is accusing Immigration New Zealand general manager Peter Elms of lumping the school with a raft of allegations that do not relate to it.

The agency and the Qualifications Authority have taken action against the school and three others for not meeting their obligations in respect to international students.

Mr Elms says the serious breaches include students studying for less than 20 hours a week and fee discrepancies.

The School of Business and Government says it is confident it will meet requirements, allowing the resumption of visa processing for next year's student intake.
