An online learning provider is suggesting the government needs to give schools a catch up budget to support struggling NCEA students.

Lock down means students have missed 50 days of school and now have to play catch up as well as continue with their exam studies.

Learn Coach CEO Dave Cameron told Kate Hawkesby schools do innovative things with their students to promote learning.

"If they had a budget for online and offline resources to help students catch up or run extra sessions, it'd make a big difference for schools."
