Paper and statement by minister

MS BURCH (Brindabella—Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Disability, Children and Young People, Minister for the Arts, Minister for Women, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Racing and Gaming): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Education and Care Services National Law—Education and Care Services National Amendment Regulations 2014, dated 8 May 2014

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS BURCH: As Minister for Education and Training, I am today tabling the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2014 amendment. These amendments were agreed by all education ministers in April to improve the operation of the national quality framework for early childhood education and care. While many of these amendments are relatively minor, they directly respond to feedback from the sector and will resolve some of the issues that were raised with the introduction of the NQF.

The amendments provide flexibility for staffing arrangements, and the amendments also streamline the supervisor certificate approval process to cut red tape for services and regulatory authority. This government remains committed to the national quality framework as it delivers benefits to children, families and education and care services.
