A new mobile application is being launched this week to provide fast and easy access to information about NCEA.

Called NCEA Guide, the app was targeted at parents, whanau and employers and provided key information to help them understand more about NCEA.

Education Minister Hekia Parata said the app would have content about how the qualification was used after studying, how credits worked, and how endorsements were earned.

It would be free to download and content could be viewed in English and Te Reo Maori.
