This course has been developed to help educators create a useful and accurate Quality Improvement Plan.

The course also explains how to plan effectively for future improvements using the model of the quality improvement spiral.


The course will provide you with an understanding of:

  • understand the requirement of developing and maintaining a Quality Improvement Plan under the National Quality Framework
  • understand the compulsory self-assessment and quality-improvement processes of early childhood settings
  • unpack how a Quality Improvement Plan can support continuous improvement
  • use realistic assessment of current practice as the basis for a successful Quality Improvement Plan
  • reflect on practice and identify areas for improvement over time.


Suitable for early childhood education and care professionals at all stages of their careers.
