ACE005: TEO to ensure ACE programme, qualification or course is eligible


The TEO must ensure that a programme of study or training in which an eligible learner is enrolled is, and continues to be, provision that is designed to:

a)     target learners whose previous learning was not successful; and

b)     raise foundation skills; and

c)     strengthen social cohesion, enhancing a learner’s ability to participate in society and economic life.


A programme of study or training in English for Speakers of Other Languages, New Zealand Sign language or Te Reo Māori does not have to meet all of those criteria.
