How do I get access?

You will need an Education Sector Logon to access Rangaranga. The Education Sector Logon is a single sign-on service used by many New Zealand education sector online services, so you may already have an account. For a refresher on the process, visit this page.

If you are unsure, contact your school ESL administrator for more information on creating or modifying an Education Sector Logon account for use with Rangaranga.

If you do not have an ESL account or are having issues with your logon please visit the relevant links below.
