Tuesday May 7- Catharine Hydon

This session is for early year’s educators and kindergarten teachers.

Catharine Hydon will explore the three Exceeding Themes and how together these themes describe the high-quality practice demonstrated and expected at the Exceeding NQS level for any standard and how the three themes aim to ensure transparent expectations of quality are clear for providers, educators and authorised officers.

Catharine will discuss the assessment and rating visit and how authorised officers will use ‘observe, discuss and sight’ methods to collect evidence of all three exceeding themes in order to rate a standard as Exceeding NQS.
