IEU lobbies on behalf of early childhood services regarding Assessment and Ratings

The IEU has been contacted by more than 20 individual early childhood services in addition to a group of 40 regional services with concerns about the current National Quality Standards Assessment and Ratings process (A&R).

The IEU thanks members for providing detailed information about their experiences with A&R. The IEU was so concerned about the number significant issues raised that on May 27 immediately wrote to Tracy Mackey (Executive Director, Early Childhood Education at the Early Childhood Education Directorate), Rhonda Livingstone (National Education Leader and General Manager, Educational Leadership at ACECQA), Sarah Mitchell MP (NSW Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning) and Kate Washington MP (NSW Shadow Minister for Early Childhood Education). We will let you know when we receive a response from the relevant parties.
