Preparing NQF policies and procedures

Information to consider when preparing and reviewing policies and procedures.

Acecqa – The Australian Children's Education & Care Quality Authority

Approved providers must ensure their education and care services have policies and procedures covering a range of areas set out in regulations 168 and 169 of the National Regulations.

This set of guidelines steps providers and their services through the information to consider when preparing and reviewing these policies and procedures. They offer a starting point to develop policies and procedures that are comprehensive, current and suited to each service.

As the guidelines have been prepared for use Australia-wide, services will also need to consider any relevant state or territory specific requirements when drafting their policies and procedures.
