Small businesses may qualify for vouchers to help pay for services such as training workshops, courses and coaching that build the management capabilities of their owners, operators or key managers.

NZTE Capability Development Vouchers are only available through Regional Business Partners around New Zealand. Regional Business Partners assess local businesses to determine what their needs are, and assist them with a plan to help them develop, grow and innovate.

Vouchers may be allocated as part of the plan to help businesses pay for up to 50% of the cost of services from registered providers that improve management capabilities in targeted areas. For more information on the NZTE Capability Development Voucher scheme or to find your local Regional Business Partner click here…

There is an eligibility criteria to meet and provided it is met, a Regional Business Partner will issue you with a virtual voucher against a specified service category. This will enable you to receive a financial subsidy of up to 50% towards the cost of training under a registered service such as Leone Evans Coaching.

You are then able to make direct contact with the service provider and agree on the training that will be provided. The service provider will set up the training sessions and the virtual voucher applied to that session.
