Important notice for all Te Waharoa Ararau (TWA) users

TWA is being upgraded. The existing version of Te Waharoa Ararau (TWA) can be used until 5pm on Thursday 21 July 2016, after which time it will become read-only. This is so that data can be migrated over to the upgraded version of TWA, which will be available for use from 25 July 2016.

How you access TWA will change. To access the new TWA, all users must have an Education Sector Logon. Principals will have received an email outlining how to apply for the logon using the Electronic Provisioning Application, the changes that have been installed into TWA and how to ensure continued access so that overall teacher judgements can be recorded.
