At the start of 2015, the work of the NECT in the district moved into its implementation phase through the provision of intense support to the 54 (10%) Fresh Start Schools (FSS) which serve as test sites for NECT innovations. The NECT is currently preparing to scale up innovations to benefit all schools in the district from the beginning of 2017. 

The NECT has contracted the Price Waterhouse Coopers Consortium (PWC, Class Act, PSA and Penreach), to support the targets schools in the district.
