Up to 50 teaching positions will be lost in the shake-up of Canterbury Schools, Newstalk ZB has reported.

Education Minister Hekia Parata's interim decisions are that seven schools will close and 12 will merge, and staff at the affected schools will have to reapply for their positions, she said.

"Teachers would have the opportunity to reapply for jobs in the merged schools but it is in the principal's own contractual agreements that roles for principals must be advertised externally.''
