Following Melzie, it could be, "Attendance is compulsory every day and 15-18 hours of formal tuition are invoiced each week."

agree  Nesrin: possibly handwritten and misread

  -> Thanks Nesrin

agree  Tony M: I think 'involves' is the most logical typo to assume. i is close to l and c is next to v; get either one of those wrong, and a spell-checker will do the rest!

agree  Melzie: for typo, I'd say it's invoiced rather than invoice (it's one I do all the time) - 15 - 18 h/week are invoiced - looks like a rush job with no re-reading, tut

agree  jccantrell: Since tuition is mentioned, and this INVOLVES money in the USA, I would think that 15-18 hourse are BILLED to the person, as you mentioned. But I would NOT point to a typo in this case.
