As part of the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga, the Ministry of Education Government will be consulting with the education sector and the public on a draft NELP in mid-2019. This consultation will last around 16 weeks.

The Ministry will be developing the draft NELP, between now and November 2019. To do this, we will use: 

  • 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 discussions held with children and their parents, as well with education organisations and other groups, such as those representing learners with disabilities and school boards of trustees. These discussions will run from October to November 2018.

 As noted, there will be full public consultation on the draft NELP from around mid-May to August 2019.
