The CLA service has ended as the Ministry shifts its focus to initiatives that support the Digital Technology and Hangarau Matihiko curriculum changes.

The CLA's extensive library of resources is now incorporated within the Technologies section of the Enabling e-Learning website. The online guides provide practical information to support schools with:

  • planning and developing your infrastructure 
  • choosing and deploying devices
  • providing technical and professional support.
