How often do I have to send in work?
We like to receive work or a phone call every two weeks. However, this can vary depending on the level of study and the course. We encourage students to send work to us as they complete it, so teachers can give feedback. To be eligible for payment for supervision, full-time students must return work at least once a month.
I can’t send any work in for some time. What should I do?
Contact your teacher or learning advisor to discuss the situation and your options.
What happens if I don’t send in assessable work regularly?
Students who do not send in work for an extended period of time are truanting and can’t remain on our roll. If you are under 16 years old, we will notify the Ministry of Education’s Non-Enrolled Truancy Service.
As a parent/supervisor, what can I do to make sure my student attends school?
Encourage your student to send in assessable work every two to three weeks.
I’m a supervisor. How will I know if my student is truanting?
We will send you a letter if your student has not sent any work for a month or more. The student will be taken off our roll if no assessable work is received by the end of the following month.
For example, our records might show that no work was received from a student in July (and the student has been enrolled for two months or more). We will send a letter saying that assessable work must be received by the end of August.
In this example, if no work is received by the end of August, a final letter will be sent. This letter will say the student has been taken off our roll. Students taken off the roll are referred to the Non-enrolled Truancy Service if they are under 16 years old.
This process does not apply to students living overseas.
What if I haven’t returned work because of special circumstances?
If special circumstances have prevented you from returning work, you or your supervisor should contact the teacher.
I have a dual-enrolled student not returning work. What should I do?
Check the list of non-engaged students on our online enrolment system, which is updated each month. It is your responsibility to withdraw students who have not returned work or to let us know of any extenuating circumstances.
