The NQF aims to promote continuous improvement in the provision of quality education and care services, to ensure the health and safety of children attending these services and improve their educational and developmental outcomes.
The OSHC QDP is a targeted program funded by the department and is designed to support quality improvement in the OSHC sector. The program focuses on building the knowledge and capability of educators and leaders in OSHC services operating under the NQF.
The program also involves face to face forums across the state delivered on behalf of the department by Network of Community Activities. The second round of these face to face forums, focusing on OSHC programming and practice, is being held at seven regional centres from 29 October to 15 November. More information can be found on the department’s website.
