Te Rito for ākonga and learners

Supporting continuous and lifelong learning

Support at every stage of your learning journey

Te Rito is a data repository that enables information about your learning history, strengths and needs to move with you as you progress through your education, building a rich record of your learning over time. This means your kura and schools will be better equipped to work with you to realise your full potential, valuing and respecting the things that make you unique. Instead of re-telling your story when you move to a new kura or school, your learning information will travel with you, supporting your transition to your new kura or school.

Participate in your learning

With Te Rito, it will be easy for you to see and participate in your own learning and progress. In time, you and your parents or guardians will be able to directly access your information.

All information about you on Te Rito belongs to you. It does not belong to the kura or school. You have the right to ask for and access your information.

When you’ll see Te Rito in your school

Te Rito will be progressively rolled out to kura and schools across Aotearoa, with new features added over time.

Currently access is limited to education sector staff but in time will be expanded to include ākonga, learner, and whānau access.

From term 3, 2023 we will trial learner and ākonga access with Ko Taku Reo: Deaf Education New Zealand.

Your kura or school will let you know if Te Rito is being used, or soon to be used, and what that means for you.

There is nothing you need to do now.
