TELA+ digital devices for teachers and principals

Teacher at laptop

All permanent full-time and part-time teachers (0.5 FTE and over) in state and integrated schools can lease selected digital devices from Acer, Apple, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft for a three-year period. The range of devices includes laptops, tablets, and Chromebooks. 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, tablet, or Chromebook 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, use your original TELA email address to log in. You will then be asked to enter a new password.
