From 2024, NSW will begin to trial select tool/s that can assess children’s outcomes across multiple domains, to ensure NSW is well placed to meet the national requirements come 2025. NSW is committed to working in partnership with the sector throughout the development and implementation of the trial to ensure a best practice approach is adopted.
