National Education Growth Plan

Earlier this month, the Government released the first part of the National Education Growth Plan (NEGP) which shows that the Government is planning for 100,000 additional student places in high-growth areas to 2030.

This plan is supported by the largest investment ever by a New Zealand Government in school property of $1.2 billion. 

The NEGP is designed to address the complexity and transformation required across all of New Zealand’s high growth regions to ensure that sufficient capacity is delivered nationwide in the right place at the right time.

Growth plans for other high growth areas will be announced later this year.
