MOCK ASSESSMENT & RATING

1. Desktop Review

Initially, our consultant conducts a thorough review of your quality improvement plan, service policies and procedures, and historical service records. This stage sets the foundation for tailored guidance.

2. On-site Evaluation

Next, our consultant visits your facility to directly observe and discuss practices with your team. This hands-on approach allows for an in-depth understanding of your operations.

3. Detailed Reporting

Following the visit, we compile a comprehensive report detailing any compliance issues and highlighting opportunities for quality enhancement. This report is crafted to provide clear, actionable insights.

4. Strategic Follow-up Meeting

The process culminates in a follow-up meeting where our consultant offers practical advice and strategies tailored to your specific needs. This ensures that your service is impeccably prepared and confident for any upcoming assessments.

Client Testimonials

"Steve from FireflyHR recently conducted a workshop on Active Supervision with my team. Given my team is comprised mostly of young educators, Steve's input into ratios, compliance and child protection proved invaluable. He related the information to real-life situations and opened the floor up to group discussion. As a Nominated Supervisor, I found it particularly helpful to revisit the basics. I can't recommend the workshop highly enough!"

Acknowledgement of Country

At Firefly HR, we acknowledge the traditional owners of the land we work & connect with you from today. As a base, Firefly HR connects from the land of the Garigal or Caregal people, and would like to acknowledge all 29 clan groups of the Eora Nation.

At Firefly HR, we connect – although online, and meet by story sharing, learning, taking on non verbal queues, deconstruct and reconstruct information, and move in non linear directions at times. We use symbols without realising, and link with our own land and community.

This is all interconnected. We are utilising Aboriginal pedagogy with these processes and in our daily work.

We acknowledge the land that we are on today has been the core of all spirituality, language, knowledge, and sacred sites. This knowledge is what us and others need to embrace to ensure a future for our children and our children’s children.

We need to hear, respectfully, and listen.

As a guiding principle to the National Quality Framework that Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are valued, we are working on building the foundations here and believe a strong, meaningful acknowledgement of country is important.
