Adult Literacy Educator Fund

Monitoring and reporting

On this page:

Monitoring

All tertiary education organisations (TEOs) that receive funding from the Adult Literacy Educator (ALE) Fund will be monitored against the performance indicators and delivery commitments agreed with us through the Investment Plan.

We monitor delivery of ALE funded programmes through:

  • learner numbers (actual course enrolment numbers)
  • completion rates
  • learning outcomes

  • anything else that may be relevant to the TEO, its ALE programme, or learners.

TEOs delivering ALE funded programmes will be measured against a minimum performance indicator of 80 percent of learners completing at least 40 credits towards an approved ALE qualification over a 12-month period.

If the TEO has not met the required levels of performance, the TEC may:

  • use the level of performance to inform future funding decisions, and
  • recover funding if the TEO has not met a condition of funding imposed in its Investment Plan funding approval letter.

 

Reporting

We require TEOs receiving ALE funding to report three times each calendar year. TEOs must submit reports to us using the Data Collection for Adult Literacy Educator Grant reporting template in Workspace 2 (see Condition ALE001).

For 2016, the reporting dates have changed. Reports are due by:

  • 15 April 2016
  • 15 August 2016 and
  • 31 January 2017.

The specific reporting requirements for ALE qualifications are as follows:

  • National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Vocational/Workplace): the TEO must report against the number of actual completions 12 months after study starts.
  • National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Educator): the TEO must report against the number of students that are on track to complete the qualification 12 months after study starts, followed by actual completions 24 months after study starts.

Reporting on previous years' ALE funding

Tertiary education institutions (TEIs) that received ALE funding in 2015 had a performance requirement that a minimum of 80 percent of learners complete an approved ALE qualification within the required timeframe.

TEIs that delivered approved qualifications of 120 credits at New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) level 6 and above in 2014 and 2015 must report against the number of students that are on track to complete the qualification 12 and 24 months after study starts, followed by actual completions 36 months later.
