The schools’ curriculum follows the New Zealand Standards. New Zealand school terms are 10 weeks with a two-week break between terms. Term 1 begins the end of January. And Term 4 ends in December. Placements in New Zealand are made for 10 weeks, but longer terms can be negotiated. However, placements longer than 10 weeks must take into account the two-week (non-teaching) break period.

The following are a few of the schools where students have been placed:
