We’ll focus on 'Working Towards' services in 2019
Education and care services rated as Working Towards the National Quality Standard (NQS) will be a focus of the Education Standards Board’s assessment and rating activity this year.
In SA, we have 79% of services with a quality rating of Meeting NQS or above.
National research shows that about two-thirds of services rated as Working Towards improve at reassessment. So we want to support services in their efforts to improve their practices.
Monitoring visits will continue to form an important part of our educative activity and assist us in developing cooperative relationships with services. These visits will also add to the information we have about issues that affect the sector and reassure us that a rating is still accurate.
