Education Sector Logon upgrade

The Education Sector Logon (ESL) is being upgraded in October.

The Education Sector Logon is the identity and access management system for the education sector. It currently supports around 100,000 teachers, administrators and other workforce users across over 25 sector applications from the Ministry, NZQA, N4L, TEC and Education Council including ENROL, e-asTTle and the NZQA and TEC Extranets. The ESL has also previously been known as the Education Sector Authentication and Authorisation system (ESAA).

In preparation for the upgrade, there will be a configuration change to applications over the next few months (June to August) that will not impact users. Users may notice a change in their web browser redirects as they log in to an application.

In early October, the ESL will be upgraded over two weekends. This is subject to confirmation and the confirmed timeframe will be provided as soon as possible. Following the upgrade, users of the ESL will experience an updated logon screen and improved self-service, while school authorisers will authorise their users directly within ESL instead of making requests through the Education sector logon Provisioning Application (EPA).

Further information will be provided in the lead up to this change.
