Managing Director, Penelope QIP
The revisions to the National Quality Standards (NQS) were introduced on February 1. Change is often accompanied by uncertainly. To help, I drew on the Penelope QIP team’s expertise in quality regulation and systems for efficient continuous improvement in providing a free ‘understanding the revised NQS’ webinar series. Indicative of the level of doubt linked with the revisions, more than 3000 people from within Australian Early Education and Child Care (EECC) have registered to date.
A key factor in the unprecedented demand for this webinar is that many people don’t feel supported to adapt to the changes. If they are aware of information such as ACECQA’s 633-page ‘Guide to the National Quality Framework (NQF)’, they’re first struggling to identify the changes relevant to them. There’s a further feeling of despair surrounding how services need to adapt their proactive.
