The Education Resourcing System (ERS)

The Education Resourcing System (ERS)

Schools & kura apply for Additional Relief Teacher Funding. Some other funding is paid through the ERS. Playgroups apply for operational funding.

ERS overview

School and kura users can submit online requests in the ERS to apply for Additional Relief Teacher Funding (ARTF). ARTF funding applications are processed electronically. ERS users can attach information to ARTF requests, track the status of the request and view payment notices online.

Payments for some other types of one-off funding, such as COVID-19 support, are made through the ERS. The types of funding that are paid through the ERS are listed under the key tasks drop down menu. ERS users can view payment advice notices for these funding types online. Applications for these funding types are made outside of the ERS.

For playgroups only, the ERS can be used to make operational funding requests and see an overall view of all the funding paid to them, including the outcomes of any support grant payments.

Pourato coming soon

A new online system called Pourato is being developed to deliver resourcing to schools, kura and the early learning sector. From September 2022, schools and kura will be able to use Pourato to view their resourcing information online for the 2023 school year. The ability to make resourcing requests will be added later.

Pourato is in development for the early learning sector, and updates will be provided in due course on when it will be available.

Pourato will exist alongside the current Education Resourcing System (ERS), until what you can do on the ERS is incorporated into Pourato. 

Who should be using the ERS?

All schools, kura and playgroups can use the ERS. 

Typically, an administrator in these organisations will make ARTF requests by logging into the 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 the ERS separately for each one.
