As part of the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga, the Ministry of Education is now consulting with the education sector and the public on a draft NELP.

To develop the draft NELP:

  • Insights from the over 43,000 responses received from educators, summit participants, parents, children, young people, Māori and Pacific People, people with disabilities, and with employers, as part of the Education Work Programme, and the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga. Many of these responses are about what the government’s future early learning and schooling priorities should be, and about what our learners need to be successful. 
  • Results from additional targeted discussions held with children and their parents. These discussions ran from October to November 2018 and a report has been published here 

There are 2 consultations now open for this conversation:

Take the NELP Take the TES

Shaping a Stronger Education System with New Zealanders

Have your say on the draft Statement of National Education and Learning Priorities (NELP) and Tertiary Education Strategy (TES)

The Statement of National Education and Learning Priorities (NELP) and Tertiary Education Strategy (TES) translate the vision and objectives for education into priorities for places of learning from early learning through to tertiary education. For the first time, we are taking an integrated approach to set the direction for the education system.

Consultation details

We want to know what you think about the proposed priorities. Consultation on the NELP and the TES has started, and will close for the TES in late October, and for the NELP in late November. You can provide feedback via the online surveys, submissions, social media, and targeted face-to-face consultations.
