Understanding changes to the NQS

Many services struggle to find the time or user-friendly ways to assist all educators to understand the changes to the NQS but realise how important it is if they hope to achieve a successful outcome at their next Assessment and Rating visit.

This in-service opportunity would enable all staff to:

  • Gain an overview of what has changed and the reasons behind it
  • Explore the significant differences
  • Feel more confident when understanding self-assessment
  • Assist in completing the QIP
  • Understand and deliver quality practice every day not just during Assessment and Rating
