10 Year Property Plan (10YPP) training

All 10 Year Property Plans (10YPP) must be prepared by a 10YPP Consultant who has completed the Ministry’s training.

This year, we will be delivering 10YPP training as a distance learning package. The material will include readings, videos, exercises and assessments. You will also be required to attend three one-hour webinar sessions. This has replaced the classroom sessions, and no travel will be required to attend the training as it will all be done remotely.

The programme will run through July and August 2020. To complete the training, you should expect to spend up to 2 hours per day on this material over a period of a week and a half.

We will cover:

  • The Ministry’s tools and methodology for Condition Assessments
  • Identifying and prioritising projects and applying the Ministry’s policies
  • Preparing a 10YPP
  • Working in partnership with schools and the Ministry
