Connexis | Te Pūkenga, understands everyone’s journey is unique, sometimes commitments can get stretched and circumstances can change. That’s why we are now offering the Financial Assistance Fund to support our learners in achieving their career goals.

The creation of this fund was made possible thanks to a grant from the Infrastructure Education & Training Charitable Trust (IETCT) setup by Connexis ITO on transitioning into Te Pūkenga. The Financial Assistance Fund is to support learners that are experiencing struggles in progressing through their training programme. The funds are to provide extra support to the learner and help them be successful at work, at home and in completing their training programme. This could be due to access to resources, access to learning support or the pressure of managing work, family and learning.

We understand that some of our learners are working long hours and are having to balance their learning in amongst their household commitments with no other support at home. This fund can provide support to those learners that maybe struggling to free up spare time each week to commit to their studies.

Successful applicants can receive up to $3,000 to help with their specific needs, whether that be towards study materials, home support, technology, learning support or anything that can support you through your training journey.
