New Zealand Curriculum 

Resource releases & trials

Sorted in Schools launched its first teaching and learning package for the New Zealand Curriculum on 11 March, 2019. The package was released for year 9-10 students following a five-week pilot and evaluation period with teachers and students.

Sorted in Schools’ teaching and learning packages are co-constructed by teachers for teachers, and our developed by CORE Education, our learning provider.

During the evaluation, teachers and students gave us feedback on what worked for them and what needed improvement. We took that feedback onboard and have amended the programme and our website accordingly.

 

Package 1: starting on financial identity 

The first teaching and learning package is based on the theme of financial identity and covers the topics of; managing my money/moni, debt/nama, setting goals and savings.

We recommend creating a personal profile, which will give you access to a personalised dashboard. This will allow you to save and share resources and activities, to save you time and assist in lesson planning.

All Sorted in Schools’ resources are fully aligned to the New Zealand Curriculum. The financial identity package is aligned to the curriculum via core subjects English, maths and statistics, digital technologies and social sciences.

Below you’ll find additional material such as posters for your classroom, logos for your school website and email, as well as achievement certificates and a website guide to help you navigate the website. If you have any questions about the programme, please email our team at schools@sorted.org.nz.

 

Package 2 (trial): starting on financial sustainability

The trial resources for the second package for years 9-10 are based on the theme of financial sustainability. They're available now on the financial sustainability page and also on the resources page. Topics covered include KiwiSaver, retirement, insurance and investment. 

We're running two trials for the sustainability package. 

The official trial is being run by CORE Education, our educational partner, who will be taking eight schools through the resources and collecting their feedback. 

The second more informal trial is available to all secondary schools and kura. We invite year 9-10 teachers to access and use the financial sustainability resources. Feedback can be provided via a voluntary survey in mid-term 2. 

Feedback collected from the official and informal trial will be used to refine the package and improve the programme overall. 

Register for a personal profile to access the dashboard where resources can be saved and shared. The dashboard has been designed to save time and to assist in lesson planning.

Contact us if you have any suggestions on how the resources and website can be improved.  

 

What about Māori Medium Education?

We’re currently developing the first Māori Medium Education (MME) resources in te reo Māori for years 9-10. A key success measure for Sorted in Schools is ensuring all young New Zealanders have equitable access to financial capability education. The package will be released in Term 2.
