2019 NQF Review

NQF Review 2019 logo small kids and coloured circles around


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.

It’s been five years since the last review in 2014 and it’s time to check back in and see what areas of the NQF can still be improved, including the National Law and National Regulations.

Over the next two years there will be regular opportunities to find out more, provide feedback, and get updates on options being considered by governments.

Thank you for providing your valued feedback during the first phase of public consultations, which is helping governments develop options for any regulatory changes.

We'll be sharing a Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (CRIS) and seeking your feedback on it during the second phase of public consultations in early 2020.
