First steps

Te Kura offers a wide range of courses for eligible dual-registered students who are attending another school, Alternative Education or Teen Parent Unit.

To register a dual student online, go to our Te Kura Enrolment System (TES) or visit our Registration page for more information.

Most of our courses are delivered online, so students will require access to a suitable device and internet connection.

In our experience, dual students are more likely to succeed when the enrolling school appoints a school coordinator who is responsible for coordinating registrations, ensuring students have access to the resources they need and arranging supervision and student support. Students achieve their learning goals when this is in place in their face-to-face school, when work is submitted regularly for assessment and when there is good communication with Te Kura subject teachers.

To remain on our roll, the Ministry of Education requires each student to submit assessable work at least once a month for each subject the dual student is enrolled in.
