Exceeding the National Quality Standard Conference.

About this event

Back by popular demand, the Exceeding the NQS Conference is returning to Melbourne!!!!!   

Services must demonstrate three exceeding themes for a standard in the National Quality Standard (NQS) to be rated Exceeding.  This full day conference will help you to learn more about the exceeding themes. You will also learn about how to provide evidence of the exceeding themes in practice. The Exceeding the National Quality Standard conference is for educators, educational leaders, providers and managers of all services in scope of the National Quality Framework, including: long day care services, outside school hours care services, preschools/kindergartens/prep, family day care services, etc.

Participants will gain an insight into: 

  • 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 authentic strategies to both improve your practice, reflect on your practice, and demonstrate how your practice exceeds the National Quality Standard.

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

Morning tea and lunch included.
