The pilot for the first package for NZC years 9–10 finished on Friday, 16 November. The resources are currently going through an evaluation process to ensure they meet the expectations of schools and teachers. A finalised version will be released in February, 2019.

The first package was based on the theme of financial identity glossary , covering the topics of:

  • Managing my money
  • Goal setting

The theme of the second package for NZC years 9-10 will be based on sustainability, covering the topics of:

  • Insurance
  • KiwiSaver
  • Investing
  • Retirement

This package will be released in early 2019. The Māori Medium Education programme for kura 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.
