Who selects the NEX?
The Ministry of Education selects and appoints the NEX.

The NEX programme is funded by The Ministry of Education.
How do subject or kaiako/teacher groups, associations or networks apply for NEX funding?
There is an opportunity for networks to provide peer to peer support for the current change programmes. With the current NEX contracts expiring at the end of Term 1 2024, the Ministry will be commencing an open-market request for proposals (RFP) process to source networks for 2024 onwards. All government tenders are posted on the Government Electronic Tender Service (GETS) to promote open, fair competition in the New Zealand government market. If your organisation is interested in submitting a proposal when the RFP opens, please ensure that you are registered on GETS and set up to receive notifications for opportunities in the education space.
The RFP is nowlikely to open late-January 2024 and close in early-March 2024 to ensure that all potential suppliers have an adequate amount of time to prepare and submit their proposal in and around the holiday period.
All documentation related to the RFP will be published on GETS when the tender opportunity is live. The instructions on how to apply, the requirements, and response forms to complete will be included in the GETS listing.
What is the criteria for becoming a NEX?
The Ministry of Education sets out the desired requirements for NEX when they open the application process, but requirements will generally support strategic shifts and initiatives in the education system.
