What’s it about?
“The effective management of education and care services requires the constant review of a changing environment to enable continuous improvement” Guide to the national quality Standards p 165.
A Quality improvement plan is a document which should reflect the unique circumstances of the service and its community. The development and continued maintenance of quality improvement plans is a requirement under the National Regulation. Through the use of practical examples, this workshop will support participants to develop skills and knowledge to support the development of Quality Improvement Plans.
