Getting the algorithm fixed – New look of compliance pathway for Early Childhood and Therapeutic Supports

  • by

Here you will find a quick overview of how new compliance pathway will look like…

  • ECS & TS still require Certification 
    • Means, it will involve both stage 1 (desktop) and stage 2 (onsite) audits.
    • Another significant change is that a single auditor will be able to conduct the audit
  • The modules against which you will need to demonstrate compliance with are:
    • Verification module outcomes
    • ECS module
    • Module 3A – which is just one outcome (Violence, Abuse, Neglect, Exploitation and Discrimination) from the Core module

How these reforms will impact your business?

In the larger canvas, it brings a significant saving in terms of preparation time where instead of demonstrating compliance with all 80+ Quality Indicators you will need to comply with just 3 which we will cover in detail in our upcoming LIVE webinar (click here to get registered).
