Teacher Laptop Scheme update

Issue: Volume 97, Number 1

Posted: 29 January 2018
Reference #: 1H9hEK

The Teacher Laptop Scheme (known as TELA) is a laptop leasing scheme for eligible principals and teachers in state and state integrated schools. The scheme also provides a helpdesk, warranty and repairs service. Laptops are leased for three years and then replaced with the school’s choice of device from the latest TELA catalogue.

To ensure best service for teachers and principals, a competitive tender process was followed to select a TELA Scheme Support Services Provider. As a result of this, the new provider is Cyclone Computer Company (www.cyclone.nz(external link)), which will support this scheme for the next three years. The change will come into effect on 1 March 2018.

This Support Services Provider change should have little impact on teachers and principals using the scheme and they can continue to use the TELA scheme throughout the changeover.

As part of the transition to the new provider, there may be a brief outage in the TELA portal at the end of February due to the changeover between providers. 

Further information will be provided in the next issue of Education Gazette.
