Appraisals and Professional Development
Time: 3 Hours
Feedback for staff should be provided as regularly as possible to guide them in their work. The purpose of feedback is to enable people to deliver work the way the service needs, identifying any support, resources or training the individual might require.
In this training you will examine how staff appraisals can be used as a tool for staff development and learn practical strategies on how to establish staff appraisal processes in your service.
Communication and Effective Teams
How to Prepare and Manage a Budget
Preparing a detailed, well researched budget is an essential tool to ensure sound financial management. An effective budgeting process enables planning and decision making and provides a picture of opportunities and threats to service delivery.
In this session we will look in-depth at budget preparation in the Early Childhood Education and Care context.
Introduction to Business Planning
A business plan is a picture of where you are now, where you are going and how you intend to get there.
In this training for Owners, Management Committees, Directors and Administrators, we will give you the tools to develop a strategic business plan to enhance the growth and sustainability of your service through detailed analysis and by identifying short and longer term goals.
Introduction to the NQF
The National Quality Framework (NQF) seeks to improve outcomes for children through legal obligations for all education and care services to:
- ensure children’s safety, health and wellbeing (compliance requirements)
- engage in quality improvement by Working Towards, Meeting and, in turn, Exceeding the National Quality Standard (quality improvement requirements).
The objectives and principles of the NQF should underpin your service’s strategic planning objectives, policy development and quality improvement processes. Everyone who works with young children need to understand, and is responsible for using, the Framework.

Intentional Teaching in Practice
Intentional teaching is defined as “educators being deliberate, purposeful and thoughtful in their decisions and actions” – but how can educators be reflective and attentive in a fast paced environment?
Learn how to plan and implement opportunities for intentional teaching and be a calm educator with a clear strategy for your day.
Leadership and the NQF
The National Quality Framework encourages all educators to see themselves as leaders. Leaders create a positive culture, empower others and work towards continuous quality improvement.
Explore the role of leaders in children’s services and understand how every educator has a role in leading – leading a team, leading children or supporting their own leaders. We will look at any specific leadership issues your service is facing, and provide you with practical strategies to implement today.
