As a long-standing member of the Edvance team, Lynda has touched every role in the company. This shows her commitment and passion for the Edvance vision and mission “To work with individuals to advance workplace skills and personal learning goals.” She takes a personal interest in each programme Edvance is involved with, so you will often find her interacting personally with a company or attending a graduation, all the while planning the future of Edvance.
With over 40 years’ experience in teaching, Lynda has seen the benefits of foundation knowledge in numeracy, literacy and communication and how it can change people’s lives. This change often leads to many opportunities for learners to grow both within companies and in their personal lives. This gives purpose and meaning to the work Edvance accomplishes through the programmes it provides to many businesses. As a nationwide company, Edvance is able to work with a range of businesses from construction, manufacturing and commercial cleaning to taxi services.
A professional goal Lynda achieved in 2016 was leading Edvance into the next level as a PTE (Private Training Establishment), by gaining the status of an NZQA Category 1 provider. This prestigious status signifies the extremely high standard of learning and reporting, as well as providing Edvance with further opportunities to make a difference in hundreds of people’s lives all over New Zealand.
Lynda is also a recipient of the ITENZ (Independent Tertiary Education New Zealand) 2017 Highly Commended Leadership Award.
