National Education Growth Plan
In July 2019, 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.
- Auckland/Te Tai Tokerau
- Canterbury, Chatham Islands and Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast
- Waikato and Hawke’s Bay, Tairāwhiti
- Bay of Plenty – Waiariki and Taranaki, Whanganui, Manawatū
- Otago, Southland
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 and available on this page below later this year.
