Learn about funding
Each fund has specific eligibility criteria that define which TEOs may apply for that funding. Criteria are specified in a funding determination by the Minister of Education according to section 159L of the Education Act 1989.
Organisations seeking funding for the first time must provide their financial viability information as outlined in Rule GEN001 at least three months before the first intake of learners. New TEOs should also view the Ministry of Education’s Induction Pack for those new to the sector. Under Rule GEN014 TEOs may not seek or obtain duplicate government funding for the same activities.
Funding decisions are subject to a right of review process before funding agreements are entered into. Funding recovery as provided for in Rule GEN015 may occur in certain circumstances.
There are specific eligibility requirements for TEIs, ITOs, PTEs, REAPs, schools and community organisations.
