Funding is closely linked to performance.

To be eligible for funding a PTE must:

  • meet PTE eligibility criteria
  • have an Investment Plan
  • keep accurate records, and publish programme and learner information as required; and 
  • ensure that the programmes being funded meet and continue to meet the relevant fund eligibility criteria and requirements.

Some funds require courses/qualifications to be accredited by NZQA.

Funding is appropriated through the Government’s Budget process.
