Tina is working three jobs to help pay for her studies. Tina doesn’t realise that she is eligible for a HELP loan to assist with the upfront cost of paying her tuition fees.HELP is the Government’s higher education loan programme and HELP loans can assist students with the upfront costs associated with study like tuition fees or student contributions.

But that’s not all there is to Tina. She has two small children, a dog, a best friend who is a bit hmm emotionally demanding, a second job selling scented soaps the weekend markets, a gym membership, is attempting a Diploma of Community Services, and to help pay for it all a third job teaching Brazilian jujitsu to housewives.
[The scene changes to show Tina in her family life, with her best friend, at the markets, at the gym, studying in the library and wearing her jujitsu uniform. Tina’s boss is with Tina in each of these scenes. Tina looks overwhelmed.]
What Tina doesn’t realise is that she is eligible for a HELP loan to assist her with the upfront cost of paying for her tuition fees. HELP is the Government’s Higher Education Loan Programme, and HELP loans can assist students with the upfront costs associated with study like tuition fees or student contributions.
[A black board reads: H.E.L.P (Higher Education Loan Programme) assists students with upfront costs like tuition fees and student contributions.]
Which means Tina wouldn’t have to teach jujitsu, or spend her weekends at the markets. Which means she can spend more time at home with her family.
[The scene changes from Tina at the library looking confident and smiling to Tina at the markets where she is throwing soap at a customer.]
HELP removes financial barriers to study and can set you on the path to a step up in your career.
So Tina could quickly become the boss of work. You will have to repay your HELP loan once you start earning above the minimum repayment threshold. But you’re not worried. You’ve made an investment in your career and are moving up in the world.
