The learning packages

When will the resources be available for the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC)?

The resources are available now! The NZC pilot for years 9–10 starts on Monday, 15 October, which is the first day of Term 4, 2018. The first learning package covers:

  • Debt glossary
  • Savings
  • Managing my money
  • Goal setting

In 2019, the second learning package will be developed for years 9–10, and will cover: 

  • Insurance
  • KiwiSaver
  • Investing
  • Retirement

By the end of 2019, the programme for years 9–10 will be completed. The Māori Medium Education programme is currently being developed and will be piloted for years 9–10 in Term 1, 2019. During 2019–21, learning packages will also be developed for years 11–13. 

Who can access and use resources?

Sorted in Schools resources are designed for the New Zealand Curriculum and for the Māori Medium Education framework, and are designed to be used by any school type or kura. 

As the resources are available online, they can also be accessed and used by school trustees, other educators, trainers, communities, whānau, youth workers and industry experts. Sorted in Schools resources link through to our Sorted website, which offers free, impartial information and tools to help manage money throughout life.

How much does the programme or the resources cost?

Sorted in Schools is a government-funded programme, and is free for all schools and kura.

Are there offline resources available?

Sorted in Schools is an online educational programme, however many resources can be downloaded and used in an offline environment.

Can I order a print version of resources?

All Sorted in Schools resources are available online via this website; we don't currently offer print versions of resources.

How do I use the resources?

Sorted in Schools resources can support both teacher-led or self-directed student learning. They include support materials for teachers to assist their students' learning in class and at home.

There are also reading materials and external links to support conversations and learning, which can be adapted to suit individual circumstances. The resources are designed to be adaptable to allow for personal learning so that teachers can support their students when choosing the direction and the pace of their learning.

Teachers also control when and how the content is delivered within their learning area or themes, and for how long.

What language are the resources available in?

Sorted in School resources for the New Zealand Curriculum are in English. Sorted in School resources for Māori Medium Education are in te reo Māori.

Can students gain credits?

The resources for years 9–10 students won't attract credits. When the programme is developed for years 11–13, students will be able to gain credits. The mix of achievement standards and unit standards will be determined and will be in line with the recommendations of the NCEA review in 2019.

Topics for years 11–13 will be the same eight topics as being developed for years 9–10.

How will the NCEA review effect Sorted in Schools?

The programme will be developed for years 11–13 starting in 2019 and will be in line with the recommendations of the NCEA review. This will guide how the programme for years 11–13 will be developed, including determining the mix of achievement standards and unit standards.
