The Victorian State Government has recently introduced into the Parliament the Education and Care Services National Law Amendment Bill 2017. The Bill amends the Education and Care Services National Law (the National Law) in the Schedule to the Education and Care Services National Law Act 2010.
The amendments to the National Law form part of reforms to the National Quality Framework (the NQF) identified as part of the 2014 Review of the National Partnership Agreement on the National Quality Agenda for Early Childhood Education and Care (the Review). The recommendations of the Review, including the amendments to the National Law, were approved by the Education Council on 31 January 2017.
