We work with all regulatory authorities to ensure the consistent application of the Education and Care Services National Law across all states and territories.
Our role, as the national authority, is to drive continual improvement and consistent levels of quality in education and care services across the country. We aim to achieve better, more reliable outcomes for parents, children, the sector and the nation.

It contains detailed guides designed to answer questions you may have on the National Quality Framework (NQF), its implementation and how the NQF applies to you.
You will also find useful material and a user guide to the NQA ITS online management system to help streamline your dealings with your regulatory authority. Plus there is information on required educator qualifications, the service assessment process, rating levels, FAQs, important links and more.
