Have your say on the 2019 NQF Review now

6 May 2019

An important national conversation about the future of quality children’s education and care in Australia is starting; and families, communities, educators, education and care services and governments are invited to join it to inform government decision-making.

It’s a big conversation that started a decade ago, and in 2019 over a million children currently attend 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 National Quality Framework (NQF) can still be improved, including the National Law and National Regulations.

The NQF Review Have Your Say website is now live. You can find information, complete an online survey, and book into face-to-face consultations across Australia.

In South Australia, we are collaborating with the Department for Education to provide consultation sessions during May and June 2019. These will be at:

  • Torrensville, 16 May, 6.30–8.30 pm
  • Port Augusta, 20 May, 1–3 pm
  • Para Hills, 21 May, 1–3 pm
  • Mount Gambier, 3 June, 1–3 pm
  • Hallett Cove, 5 June, 1–3 pm.

Book your spot through the NQF Review Have Your Say website.

The 2019 NQF Review aims to ensure that the NQF is current, fit-for-purpose and implemented through best practice regulation. We’re regulating more than 1100 services and encourage all of you to participate in this and share your wealth of experience and knowledge.

Terms of reference and an issues paper have been compiled by all governments to guide this first consultation phase of the review. 

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.

All feedback is valued. As well as this first phase of consultation, there will be an additional opportunity to have your say in 2020.

The NQF Review aims to capture as many voices as possible by July 2019 during this first phase, and would like to hear about what’s most important to you.
