An educator is absent, I can’t replace them, what should I do?

Part 4.4 of the Education and Care Services National Regulations dictate the requirements that services must meet when it comes to the qualifications of educators.  If services find themselves in a situation where they are unable to meet the qualification requirements of the regulations, they will need to notify the regulatory authority and apply for a waiver.

It is suggested that as part of this process services conduct a risk assessment to ensure that they have put alternative arrangements in place that will assist to ensure the health and safety of the children attending the service.
