Edvance receives various funding from the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC), the main fund being the Workplace Literacy (WLN) Funding pool and Edvance uses this funding to support the delivery of learning programmes to clients. Programmes are delivered across multiple, culturally diverse employer sites nationwide.
Each learner, who must be a NZ citizen or permanent resident to be eligible for funding, is offered a 25-80 hour programme of learning with delivery in small groups. The majority of our WLN TEC funded programmes run for between 10 to 40 weeks.
Edvance also accesses the Intensive Literacy and Numeracy (ILN) fund. This fund allows us to prepare learners for a career in law enforcement as well as the defence forces. We focus on the pre-entry academic training needed for learners to pass the tests and progress into their respective career pathways.
Edvance accesses this same fund for foundation based learning such as: Life Skills or English for Kiwi Life and Financial Literacy Programmes.
