Disappointed with NCEA results? Try Summer School

Tuesday, 15 January 2019


NCEA results can be cause for celebration – or disappointment. Te Kura’s Summer School offers hope to students who may have found themselves a few credits short.

Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (Te Kura), is New Zealand’s state distance education provider. Te Kura Summer School offers a range of internal standards across subjects including Science, English and Maths, and has helped hundreds of students gain qualifications.

“A young person might have just missed on getting NCEA by a few credits,” says Te Kura Chief Executive Mike Hollings. “This can be stressful, and set back plans for further study, training or employment. We want to give them another opportunity to succeed.”

Summer School is delivered through Te Kura’s award-winning online learning environment, and qualified subject teachers are available to answer questions and assess work.

“A great aspect of online learning is that, with a device and internet access, you can learn from anywhere and anytime,” says Mike Hollings.
