Welcome to Telford's STAR programme.

Telford specialises in land-based programmes.

What does STAR mean?

“Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resources” provides resources to schools who either are not equipped or not accredited to teach particular subjects. Telford provides the learning material and the assessments and undertakes the marking, the record keeping and the moderation, with the schools reporting the results to NZQA using Telford’s accreditation number: 8505 Telford has a well-established history of providing secondary school students with STAR learning by mail. We have increased our selection of Unit Standards available through our STAR programme, and we are now building on this foundation by also providing quality eLearning to students around the country.
