As part of the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga, the Ministry of Education consulted with the education sector and the public on a draft NELP. For the first time, an integrated approach to setting the direction for the education system was taken, and the draft NELP and draft Tertiary Education Strategy priorities were consulted on together.

We also considered the insights gathered 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 wider Education Work Programme, and the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga.

Consultation on the NELP and TES started on 17 September 2019 and ended on 25 October 2019 (TES) and 25 November 2019 (NELP).

We would like to thank all those who attended the sector and community hui, completed the online survey, and emailed submissions on the NELP priorities.

Analysis of the feedback gathered during this consultation is now underway, and this analysis will be published in an upcoming report.
