Kiwi college students who missed out on NCEA credits needed for University study this year shouldn't worry too much.

Online education provider Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (Te Kura) is offering a range of standards at NCEA levels 1, 2 and 3.

Mike Hollings, chief executive of Te Kura, says some students might have missed out on getting NCEA by just a few credits.

“Enrolling with Te Kura gives them a chance to quickly earn the credits they need to get into university, polytech, or get a job,” he explains.

Te Kura's qualified teachers are available online to answer students' questions and assess their work.

Credits for school work submitted for assessment by the 7th of February can be counted towards students' 2016 Record of Achievement.

Their enrolments are taken over the phone so students can get started on their school work as soon as possible.

Te Kura is New Zealand's largest state school, with around 22,000 students enrolling each year. Learning programmes are delivered by registered, qualified teachers experienced in teaching at a distance.

They offer a wide range of learning programmes from early childhood level to Year 13 with the option of studying both full-time or part-time.

Te Kura has also just released a new service called ‘The Hub'. It is aimed at students and schools to provide help with online learning.
