Preparing for the Approved Providers' Approval Process & Test

For 2022, the Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) NSW has updated and expanded its Quickies series of short but to the point presentations that help existing and new providers.

The ACA NSW Quickies are only 2 hours or less and held throughout the year in face-to-face, live webinar and video-on-demand formats. They are for Approved Providers, Owners, Directors and Nominated Supervisors with industry-specific information, advice, tips and even “tricks”.

The topics to be covered in the ACA NSW Quickies – Preparing for the Approved Providers’ Approval Process & Test are:

  • Who are required to sit the NSW Government's test?
  • How to prepare for the NSW Approved Provider process?
  • What is involved in the application process?
  • What to expect from the NSW Department of Education during this process?
  • What are the timeframes for approval?
  • What tips are there to pass the scenario-based assessment?

Did you know that in New South Wales, as part of the Provider Application process, you need to sit a compulsory examination (ie assessment) for all the individual(s) who is/are in management and control of the service?

This ACA NSW Quickies session is designed for new and existing childcare providers, who want to better understand the service approvals process.

We will provide invaluable tips on what is involved, how to fill in the application, invaluable tips on what to expect and how to pass the scenario-based assessment.
