Understanding the Assessment & Rating Process

Wednesday 28th February, 1pm AEDT


Join Steve as he unpacks the assessment and rating process, and provides advice for services to ensure they are A&R ready!

From 2024 services in most jurisdictions across Australia will receive 1-5 business days’ notice of an assessment and rating visit. This creates a need for services to be ‘always ready.’

Understanding the assessment and rating process is the first step to ensure your service is assessment and rating ready! This Think Tank will outline the quality rating system and discuss how ratings are awarded, provide a detailed overview of the assessment and rating process, discuss the avenues for appeal if services want to have their rating reviewed, and provide guidance for how educators, children and families can be supported in the lead up to the visit.

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.
