Our stories

Nick Braddock
People & Culture Business Partner
Edvance went over and above in their service provision to our company. All of the team from the Client Manager, through to the Programme Manager & Administrator were thoroughly professional and made the process easy for us. Our facilitator/teacher Liki was perfectly matched to our team culture and he connected well and gained the trust of the group instantly. Thank-you Edvance Workplace Education.
Jayson Makakea
2IC Site Manager
Edvance has transformed the lives of the PlaceMakers Frame & Truss employees who have taken part in the course. These gentlemen have grown with confidence, gained new life skills that has enabled them to take on challenging situations that will get them the results. Previously these men did not have the skill sets or tools, they didn't have the understanding of some of the course content.
Maree Lelieveld
L & D Advisor
Edvance was a pleasure to work with and all aspects of the programme were executed in a highly professional manner. Also, the opportunity for our people has been powerful and obviously had an impact on them from both a personal and professional perspective. I would have no hesitation working with Edvance on future cohorts or recommending this programme to others.
Kym Johns
HR Manager - Head of HR Asia Pacific
Here at Datamars, our mission statement is to “make a measurable difference” and Edvance has certainly done that for our company but also for the employees who have been on the learning journey. Since 2018 Edvance have impacted the lives of over 80 Datamars employees with their fantastic learning platform.
Nick Kairua
Operations Manager
Edvance are an extraordinary outfit that have made an indelible impression with our business unit leaders in Site 23 MOVE Logistics & Warehousing. The workplace training modules that Edvance offer, are certainly applicable to our industry and have helped equip our leadership team with a skillset that will serve to elevate our operation and their teams successfully.
Kim Pryor
HR & Safety Manager
Edvance have transformed the lives of our production leaders. Our leading hands were quiet, barely spoke to leadership or their peers in the context of their role. Now after having gone through the leadership and continuous improvement modules with Edvance, they are willing to call out their challenges and are able to help us build the solution. They are respectfully challenging their colleagues when expectations are not being met and have embraced their leadership roles.
Graham Berry
Operations Manager
Edvance staff were very effective at communicating with us and followed up routinely to ensure our requirements were being met. Edvance provided an excellent program tailored to our requirements and the trainer was highly professional and related well with all of our team members.
Akenese Tagiilima
Abpac Manager
Working with the Edvance team is a blessing to our organisation. The programme is free and it has offered an opportunity for some of our staff to be trained in the comfort of our own facility. The communication for the programme between Edvance and Abilities is always open which makes timetable adjustments very easy and adaptable for both parties to continue running the programme efficiently.
Adi Warren
Regional HR Business Partner
Edvance has transformed the lives of the PlaceMakers Frame & Truss employees who participated in 2021. Confidence, belief and capability that transfers to the work environment and their personal lives has been evident in how they approach people, relationships, and challenging situations they previously didn’t have the skill set to tackle. When we first looked at pulling a group together to take them on this journey.
Grant Kobus
Bulk Store Manager – Night
Jan and the team from Edvance were very professional and great to work with to get our Workplace programme off the ground. From the beginning to the end of the programme the staff were supported by the tutor and the Edvance team beyond what was expected due to the impacts of COVID. The flexibility and adaptability of the tutor was phenomenal which kept the staff motivated to complete the programme.
