Updating and reviewing policies is often a task that gets left far too long and becomes a complex and mammoth process. This workshop aims to support you to tackle this issue head on. It will provide you with all the inspiration and practical tools necessary to implement a simple ongoing system to keep your policies current. This will be done by examining the policy implications of the child safe standards introduced in Victoria in 2016. Complying with the child safe standards will require services to update several of their key policies. Participants will have the opportunity to review which policies to update and learn what needs to be included. The workshop will include some time for participants to work on their own service policies. An opportunity to tackle an important task with support and no phones ringing! BYO service policies (hard copy or electronic format)
- Learn how to set up an ongoing process of policy review and update
- Understand the steps of reviewing a policy
- Learn about the child safe standards in relation to education and care service policies
- Explore changes your service needs to make to your set of policies.

The revised VEYLDF reflects current research, practice and policy about how professionals working in the early years can enhance children’s learning and development.
The updated framework strengthens existing elements such as the practice principles, learning outcomes and transitions. It also provides greater emphasis on the importance of children’s health, critical periods such as birth to three years, respect for Aboriginal culture and responsiveness to vulnerable and disadvantaged children and families.
This session will assist participants to understand the key changes, become more familiar with the core elements and reflect on how the revised framework can be embedded in programs and practice.
Suitable for educator, teachers and other early childhood professionals
Cost: From $180.00 - $230.00
