National Education Growth Plan

In a series of regional announcements from July to September 2019, the Government released 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. School property and roll growth classroom funding announcements were made at the same time as the NEGP announcements.

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.
