About Te Rito

Te Rito is co-designed with the education sector so that ākonga and learners are top of mind in everything we do.

Te Rito is co-designed by the sector

We recognise that local educators, leaders, whānau and iwi understand what's best for their communities and how to provide the right support for their ākonga and learners.

We are working closely with Ngā Rau Whakatupu Māori and Auraki sector working groups, to plan and implement the phase 2 rollout of Te Rito.

Keeping ākonga and learner information safe

Central to the design of Te Rito is the need to keep ākonga and learner information safe and secure, get the right consents before information is added to Te Rito, and ensure ākonga and learner information is only used as intended.

Trusted information used to support learning

The information in Te Rito belongs to ākonga and learners. The access and use of data held in Te Rito will be overseen by an independent Data Kaitiakitanga Group.

Te Rito uses leading privacy and security practices and is based on technology licensed from Edsby.
