Te Rito is part of a far-reaching education reform programme being implemented by the Ministry of Education that will support every learner, whatever their economic and cultural background or ability.
Over time, Te Rito will allow increasing levels of information about learners to be shared safely and securely as learners move through their education. It will support learners, parents, whānau, educators and other decision-makers to make decisions in the best interests of learners, by enabling informed and targeted action at all levels of the education system.
