We Hear You
Welcome to We Hear You, a blog hosted by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). Since starting operation on 1 January 2012, ACECQA has met with many people in children’s education and care services, government regulatory authorities, community groups and professional associations. Talking with people about the National Quality Framework (NQF) helps us carry out our role to monitor and support the implementation of NQF. Listening helps us understand how the sector is adapting to the new framework as we work together to ensure children have the best possible start in life. With such important changes underway, ACECQA would like to hear from you. So how do we do that? We want to meet you face to face where possible and we’re doing that in a number of ways:
- establishing formal meetings with national organisations representing the children’s education and care services sector
- regularly attending your state and territory stakeholder reference groups
- visiting services whenever we can
- making it easier for you to invite us to your large events with a speaker request form on our website.
We also understand that some people are not members of larger organisations, or that you don’t get a chance to come to meetings, or that the best time for you to be heard is after 5pm. So how can we listen and talk with everyone? We Hear You. We Hear You is not only our blog, it’s our Facebook page, our Twitter account, our enquiries email and our national call centre. The online format of We Hear You gives us a way we can talk about the NQF no matter where you are or what time it is. The blog is running for a trial period, we’d like to know your thoughts and ideas on how you are finding this as a way of communicating. You can post to our Feedback page, or email [email protected]
