This program has been funded through the NSW Department of Education’s Sector Development Program. It provides free professional learning opportunities on the National Quality Framework (NQF) Assessment and Rating.

Available to all children’s Education and Care service types.

This free session aims to enable all Education and Care Services to:

  • better understand and prepare for assessment and rating visits
  • communicate what assessment and rating involves for staff
  • communicate assessment and rating to families
  • access and use available resources on assessment and ratings

Our new livestream sessions are an effective way to build your knowledge of assessment and rating from anywhere in the state, while staying COVID safe. The livestream platform gives attendees the ability to ask questions and engage with the facilitator during the session. There will also be opportunities for group interactions through, surveys and polls.

Completing Assessment and Rating – Prepare, Collaborate & Communicate will contribute 6 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing standard descriptor 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
