2019 NQF Review

The National Quality Framework (NQF), which provides a national approach to the regulation of the quality of education and care services across Australia, is under review.

An important national conversation about quality children’s education and care in Australia started a decade ago, with over one million children currently attending education and care services across Australia.

Regular NQF reviews help ensure the regulatory system supported by all Australian governments remains current and continues to lift quality of practice, and you’re invited to share your experiences and expertise to inform government decision making.

Feedback provided during the first round of 2019 NQF Review consultations has been used to develop the options detailed in the Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (CRIS).

The NQF Review Have Your Say website is where you can find information, complete an online survey, and book to attend information sessions across Australia during March and April 2021.   

Governments across Australia will be running these online and/or through COVID-safe events.

All feedback is valued, and the purpose of this consultation process is to seek a broad range of community views on the impacts the proposed options will have on the way the NQF operates across Australia.
