Policies and procedures are one of the most important sets of documents required to operate an early childhood service. However, having the most professional and comprehensive policy manual is of no use if the policies it contains are not being implemented. Likewise, procedures that outline and guide everyday practice do little to inform and support staff if they are unfamiliar with them.
This practical programme will give you all the tools you need to carry out a review of the mandatory policies and procedures required by Tusla as part of your Quality Plan. You will also get tips and strategies about engaging staff with policies and ensuring consistent application across the early childhood setting.
Please note: this programme will take around 1.5 hours to complete. However, the policy review itself will be a longer piece of work if the tools provided are applied.
1. Appreciate the importance of Policies and Procedures and conducting ongoing reviews.
2. Understand mandatory policy, procedure and statement requirements.
3. Conduct a review process and use resources to support this.
