TELA laptops

Laptops for teachers and principals

All permanent full-time and part-time teachers (0.5 FTE and over) in state and integrated schools can lease a laptop for a three-year period. The Ministry pays up to two-thirds of the cost and teachers or schools cover the remaining third.

All state and integrated schools are able to access a fully subsidised principal's laptop on a three-year lease, with upgrade models available at an extra cost. 

If you're accessing the new TELA+ website for the first time after the 1 March changeover, use your original TELA email address or user code. You will then be asked to enter a new password.

Research reports on the TELA Laptop scheme

The latest reports show teachers view laptops as a necessary tool for their jobs. The role of the principal in providing the necessary support, infrastructure, and expectation that ICT is part of the school culture is critical to their successful use.

The scheme has resulted in progress towards:

  • increasing confidence and expertise with ICT for many teachers
  • growing use of laptops for classroom practice and student learning activities
  • increasing use of laptops to strengthen communication and collaboration
  • efficiencies gained in lesson planning, preparation, administration, and reporting.
