This workshop is designed for those who are interested in understanding more about the revised National Quality Standard (NQS) and how exceeding the revised National Quality Standard is assessed and demonstrated. As of the 1st February 2018, a revised NQS was implemented, along with the requirement for services to demonstrate three exceeding themes for a standard in the NQS to be rated Exceeding NQS.

Participants in this workshop will gain an insight into:

  • Changes to the NQS
  • How to demonstrate that your high-quality practice is embedded in service operations
  • How to demonstrate that your practice is informed by critical reflection
  • How to demonstrate that your practice is shaped by meaningful engagement with families and/or the community.

Spend a day with your colleagues unpacking strategies and sharing ideas to improve your practice, reflect on your practice, and demonstrate how your practice exceeds the NQS.

Join us for this full day event, and leave with confidence and strategies to implement at your service the very next day!
