The children’s education and care sector has made significant progress since the introduction of the National Quality Framework, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of thousands of service providers, educational leaders, educators and early childhood teachers. Demand for high quality children’s education and care is stronger than ever and continues to grow. However, as we enter the second decade of the NQF, we are continuing to experience ongoing issues attracting and retaining highly qualified and experienced educators and ECTs.
One of the 21 actions within Shaping Our Future commits to a comprehensive review of the current NQF staffing and qualification regulations to improve consistency, support quality, and reduce complexity. ACECQA has been commissioned to undertake this work on behalf of all governments.
Throughout May, June and July we want to hear your perspectives on how the NQF staffing and qualification regulations could be improved.
Read the Public Consultation Document [link-TBC] to find out more about the regulations being considered as part of this review.
Between 1 May and 4 August 2023, you are encouraged to provide feedback via the online survey.
Between 5 June and 28 July 2023, you can learn more about the goals of the review and discuss the regulations under consideration by attending an online consultation webinar. Subscribe to our newsletter to be informed when event registrations open.
Your feedback is important and will help to inform options for governments to consider at the end of this year.
In October 2021, Education Ministers approved the publication of Shaping Our Future: the National Children’s Education and Care Workforce Strategy (2022-2031) to support the recruitment, retention, sustainability and quality of the sector workforce.
One of the 21 national actions commits to a comprehensive review of the current NQF staffing and qualification regulations to improve consistency, support quality, and reduce complexity, with a focus on the requirements for early childhood teachers, outside school hours care educators, and expiring transitional staffing provisions. ACECQA has been commissioned to undertake this review on behalf of all governments.
Throughout May, June and July, all interested parties will have the opportunity to share their views by completing the online survey.
There will also be opportunities to learn more about the goals of the review and the regulations under consideration through targeted consultations with national, state and territory sector organisations and public consultation webinars.
The results of this consultation will inform the development of options for governments to consider at the end of the year.
