Approved Learning Frameworks Update

A national consortium led by a partnership between Macquarie University, Queensland University of Technology and Edith Cowan University was engaged by ACECQA on behalf of all governments earlier in 2021 to deliver the 2021 National Quality Framework (NQF) Approved Learning Frameworks (ALFs) Update project. The project is being delivered over three stages. 

In Stages 1 and 2, the Literature Review, surveys and stakeholder feedback on the Discussion Paper highlighted the strengths of the current ALFs and identified areas where they could be improved.  

Stage 3 of the project is now underway: 

  • The Consortia is piloting the potential updates to the ALFs in 16 services across Australia. Throughout the pilot, service leaders and educators will provide feedback to the Consortia on the clarity, useability and efficacy of the potential updates. They will also share insights on opportunities for further improvement and on implementation. 
  • Findings and feedback from the pilot will inform recommendations for consideration by Education Ministers in mid 2022.
