Who selects the NEX?
The Ministry of Education selects and appoints the NEX.
Who funds 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?
With previous rounds of NEX funding allocation, the Ministry of Education opened a request for proposals (RFP) process, inviting kaiako and teacher groups, associations, or networks to submit a proposal for a NEX contract opportunity. This has traditionally been run as an open tender process, with the Ministry providing its required criteria and proposal documentation at the time of opening the RFPs.
Currently, there is no further NEX funding available for 2022 and 2023 and no further information available about a proposal process.
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.
