The NIEC has also formed sub-committees called working groups to focus on editing specific First Nations education policies:
Education Partnership Program
The NIEC working group is recommending changes to the current Education Partnerships Program to reflect the policy proposal on transforming First Nations elementary and secondary education to advance First Nations student achievement in First Nations provincial and territorial schools
The NIEC working group co-develops and works collaboratively to identify and address opportunities to modernize Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) education infrastructure policies and priorities that would align with First Nations Education Transformation, the unique needs of First Nations students, and take regional differences into consideration.
Post-Secondary Education (PSE)
The NIEC PSE working group is working on implementing the First Nations post-secondary education policy proposal and all associated work related to that and First Nations Control of First Nations Education.
