Te Kura provides distance learning to students who are unable to access a subject in a school. This may be because schools don’t have the capacity or teachers available to provide particular subjects e.g. te reo Māori, science, mathematics and technology. In these cases, the school can enrol their students with Te Kura.
When a school has a staff vacancy and no suitable applicants are available, Te Kura may approve dual tuition. Find out how to apply for dual tuition at tekura.school.nz
The Ministry works with Te Kura to ensure that school boards are aware of the available options, particularly when schools are unable to recruit registered teachers with the specialist skills they need.
