Update to the National Quality Framework Resource Kit
Changes to the National Regulations came into effect on 1 June 2014 in all states and territories except Western Australia, where they are planned to commence in the second half of 2014. The NQF Resource Kit (blue folder) has been updated to reflect these changes.
As a result of these updates some pages in the Guide to the Education and Care Services National Law and National Regulations and the Guide to Developing a Quality Improvement Plan have changed and are outlined here.
Updated versions of the guides are available to download or view from the ACECQA website and the Resources section below. We encourage you to view the updated version electronically or print out the amended guides and replace them in your resource kit folder. The easiest way to view them is as a PDF document on e-readers and apps such as Kindles and iBooks.
If you prefer to work with the existing guides in your resource kit folder and you don't wish to print a new version, we have provided a set of 16 'marker pages' for the October 2011, September 2013 and April 2014 editions that you can print out and insert into your guide as a reminder of the key changes.
The nature of the changes to the NQF Resource Kit means that it's not possible to simply exchange pages from your edition with the new pages from the June 2014 edition.
If you are a new service and would like to order a resource kit, you can order kits via our secure online payment system. The resource kit available is the September 2013 edition and you will need to print out the marker pages for this edition.
