Education Resourcing System (ERS)

Education Resourcing System (ERS)

Schools, Kura and early learning providers apply for funding.

ERS overview

This is the system that schools and early learning providers use to apply for different types of funding, by submitting online requests. The system calculates the entitlements and access to funds and if accepted, the system processes the payments electronically. ERS is not related to the payroll system, so it won’t affect the pay that teachers receive.

The ERS calculates funding for early learning, school operational grants, school staffing entitlements, and learning support and so forth. Funding types that fall within these categories will be processed electronically.

ERS users can attach information to online funding requests, track the status of each request, and also view payment advice notices online.

Who should be using ERS

All Schools, Kura and Early learning Providers (including playgroups) use ERS. Typically an administrator in these organisations will make funding requests by logging into ERS. An approver will log in to submit them. If you have more than one organisation that you are an Administrator or Approver for, you will need to log into ERS separately for each one.
