Hawke’s Bay’s Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT) has not cancelled any courses and is working to continue programmes digitally and online.
An Academic Business Continuity group was established to work through temporary adjustments to ensure delivery and assessments could continue through the lockdown so students would remain engaged.
There is also a working group that addresses student hardship issues and, from April 15, EIT students will be able to apply for a one-off Covid-19 hardship grant.
Library and Learning Services continue to offer students learning support from home.
