About Us

We are passionate about making a difference and are committed to increasing business productivity. Our commitment to helping as many people as possible achieve their potential is rewarding and we believe in personalised, effective workplace tutoring that makes a difference.

Edvance Directors Peter Robieson & Ruth O’Keefe had a dream to grow a business in adult literacy learning in the workplace. They knew there was a need and their dream has been achieved.

Our team of tutors are all trained teachers with many years of teaching and life experience. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience in adult teaching, facilitation, corporate training, teaching and development of core skills, digital literacy, communication, literacy, numeracy and leadership.

Edvance has many years experience working with businesses large and small, with very satisfying results for both the businesses and the individual employees on the programme.
