  • student booklet
  • a video to accompany the learning, assessment task and schedules
  • a completion certificate.

Head to NCEA Toolkit or Wāhi Pouako for a more information of the assessment standards and learning and assessment materials.

What resources will be delivered for Māori Medium Education?

We are creating a full suite of Te Reo Māori resources for secondary schools. The resources are aligned with Te Marautanga o Te Aho Matua and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. They are created specifically for kura that offer MME.

These are not a direct translation of the EME resources. While the resources are focused on financial capability, overall student and whānau/community wellbeing and sustainability is the goal. For Māori, whānau and communities wellbeing (hauora) is bigger than just financial health. It also includes whānau, mātauranga education, hinengaro physical, mental and spiritual and tinana wellbeing.

Our resources take a holistic approach to understanding financial capability and use a Māori context to help make sense of the importance of financial wellbeing.

A key success measure for Sorted in Schools is providing equitable access to financial capability education for all New Zealanders.

The MME and the NZC programmes  complement each other, meaning students and teachers can use both programmes if they wish.

What language are the resources available in?

Sorted in School Te whai hua - kia ora! resources are available in both English and te reo Māori.

Resources can be used across both curricula. For example, if you teach in an NZC setting but have a class fluent in te reo Māori, you are welcome to use the Māori Medium Education resources.

How much does the programme cost?

Sorted in Schools is fully funded by the government, and therefore a free educational programme for all New Zealand secondary schools and kura. 

Are the resources available offline?

Sorted in Schools is a digital programme but you can also download and print most of the resources if preferred.

How do I use the resources?

Our resources support both teacher-led and self-directed student learning and are designed to be used at home or in class.

The programme is the first of its kind, in that it’s aligned to the National Curriculum and embedded across core subjects. It is also free, and therefore available to all young New Zealanders.

The Level 1 and 2 Unit Standard assessments are quality assured by NZQA and can be used for students to gain credits towards their NCEA qualification.

How do I know I’m using the latest version of the assessment materials?

We will always indicate in the resource menu which version of the assessment is provided. When assessment version is updated, we will notify you in our .

You can always download the most up-to-date version.  Just make sure you have updated the version for your own records.

Why are completion certificates included in the assessment materials?

Sorted in Schools loves students to celebrate their achievements. This includes celebrating their journey of becoming financially capable. We have included certificates so you can hold an award ceremony, whether that’s completing the student booklet and/or the assessment standards.

Please note, completion certificates are not indicative of credits. When a student completes the assessment tasks, their results need to be lodged with NZQA through your school’s assessment and moderation procedures.

Participate in learning resources trials

What types of trials are there?

You can trial the learning resources in two ways.

  • A formal trial run by CORE Education
  • An informal trial run by Sorted in Schools

Formal trials are run by our resource developer, CORE Education. Joining a formal trial means you're committed to using the resources with your students during a defined period.

To ensure it doesn’t interfere with your current workload, we’ll pay for a full day teacher release, so you have time to trial the resources and collate your feedback.

CORE will provide each trial teacher/kaiako with a timeline, clear instructions, survey questions and direct support.

If you're interested in being part of a formal trial, your school will be asked to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to formalise the process. You'll be asked to complete a survey at the end of the trial to share you and your students' experiences.

Informal trials are a more casual way of trialling and providing feedback on new resources. Rather than having timelines and specific survey questions, you can use the resources in your own time and provide feedback to us directly.

You are welcome to give your feedback at any time by clicking on this link.

How do I register for trials?

All schools and kura can register and participate in any trials.

Formal and informal trials are occurring at any given timeLook out for trial updates on our homepage or register your interest by emailing us at schools@sorted.org.nz. Tell us what resources you’d like to trial and we’ll get back to you on what’s available.

Are there different ways you can trial the resources?

Yes, you can trial the learning resources in two ways: 

  • A formal trial run by CORE Education
  • An informal trial run by Sorted in Schools

 

What’s a formal trial?

Formal trials are run through our resource developer, CORE Education. Joining a formal trial means you're committed to using the resources with your students during a defined period.

To ensure a formal trial doesn’t interfere with your current workload, we’ll pay for a full day teacher release so you have time to trial the resources and collate your feedback.

CORE will provide each trial teacher/Kaiako with a timeline, clear instructions, survey questions and direct support.

If you're interested in being part of a formal trial, your school will be asked to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to formalise the process. You'll be asked to complete a survey at the end of the trial to share your and your students' experiences.

Do I need to register again if I participated in previous trials?

If you have taken part in previous trials, you will not be automatically enrolled in future trials. However, when you participate in a trial, we will ask you if you are keen to participate in future trials and contact you when a new trial takes place.

How much do the trials cost?

The trials are free for all schools and kura to participate in.

Sorted in Schools is fully government funded and all initiatives are free. The official trial through CORE Education offers teacher a release day to ensure teachers have adequate time to prepare.

What happens if I sign up but can’t complete the trial?

We understand that life sometimes gets in the way of the best laid plans. If you’ve signed up to the formal CORE trial, they’ll get in touch to see whether another teacher at your school could step in. If you've registered for the more flexible trial via our registration form, you can email us on schools@sorted.org.nz to let us know.

You are welcome to revisit the resources at any stage, and we're always welcome your feedback through this short survey or emailing us.
