About Us

In 2007 Peter Robieson had a dream to grow a business in adult literacy learning in the workplace. Maybe he was Coastguarding at the time, you never know. Regardless, since that point Peter has surrounded himself with like-minded people that have grown Edvance to be an established Literacy and Numeracy training provider, with a great NZQA Category One Provider status.

What does Catagory One Provider mean?
