The “Teacher” navigation is for, you guessed it, teachers!
Here, you’ll find everything you need to get started with teaching Financial Capability. This area introduces each learning package and shows how you can integrate these into your lessons and includes other useful tools to help you get started.
There are three sections under the Teacher navigation. These are Teacher Pathways, Teacher Tools and Curriculum Info.
Click through the below How to Guide to find out more about these.

Three downloadable documents provide useful resource matrices for both junior and senior levels and a resource flowchart to ensure you can pick up the programme and start teaching the available learning packages.
Unlike other financial capability programmes, Sorted in Schools is fully aligned to the New Zealand curriculum. If you are looking for information on how it has been aligned and what pedagogical approach underpins the programme, this is a great place to start.
An overview of the three menu items that sit under “Curriculum Info” are below:
Our PLD programme is designed for teachers interested in teaching financial capability in their classroom. We offer a range of activities that are practical and hands-on to get you:
Because teachers are busy people, our PLD programme is designed around your needs.
Fully aligned to the New Zealand Curriculum and NZQA accredited. They are linked to the MOE financial capability progressions and provide assessments based on unit standards. These resources are being developed with teachers and CORE Education to ensure senior secondary students will be set up to make good future financial decisions.
All learning is student-centered and supports individual learning plans based on their selected future tertiary education, workplace learning or industry of choice.
All our resources are aligned to New Zealand Curriculum levels 4-5 and support the learning areas of English, Maths, Social Sciences, Technology and Health. They have been tested with Year 8 children, so if your students are at that level, they can easily participate.
Under this section, you will see Resources are grouped by ‘Theme’. You can click any of these themes to find resources at Level 4 and 5 that explore your selection.
If you click on the ‘View More’ button, you can view the resources similar to the way they are under the Teacher Tools section. Here you can filter by Curriculum Level, Theme, Learning Area and Solo Learning.
1. Learning Area – Filter the resources by subject you are interested in (maths, English, technology, social sciences and health)
2. Theme – Filter the resources by theme you are interested in (i.e. KiwiSaver, managing my money, saving, debt, goals, insurance, retirement and investment)
3. Curriculum levels – Filter the resources by learning levels
The student’s area is specifically for young people who are learning financial capability through the programme. Here, students (along with teachers and whānau) can find all of the resources and activities that can be completed independently.
Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here learning about how to make smart money decisions. There are two easy steps to get started with Sorted in Schools.
First, we suggest heading to the Student Starter Pack where you’ll learn the basics of our programme such as the difference between good debt and bad debt, how a payslip works and why it’s so important to save.
Next, head to the Student Pathways where you can get started without the help of a teacher to find out exactly how and when to the resources.
There are many great resources you can get started with without the help of a teacher. There are a couple of ways you can find these:
Interactive activities are digital game-style activities for you to complete, either on your own or in a classroom with a teacher. We cover an exciting range of topics to help you understand budgeting through party planning, or KiwiSaver by going through different life decisions.
