Don't have time or resources to complete a gap analysis against the NDIS Quality and Safeguards requirements? Well here's the workshop for you. Following on from our successful practical Quality and Safeguards workshops, DSC is offering small group consultancy workshops to a limited number of service providers.

This new 1.5 day workshop will support you to complete a Gap Analysis against the 4 divisions of the Core Module. The evidence captured in your Gap Analysis can be used to complete the NDIS Commissions online self assessment.
 DSC consultants will provide you will step by step support and guidance, including tips and tricks to identifying your evidence and improvement opportunities. We've also included mapping between the HSQF standards and the NDIS Q&S Standards to help align your past auditing to the new requirements.

This hands on, practical workshop is designed for 2 staff from each organisation to work together in documenting their evidence against each Core Module Practice Standard. Be prepared to finish the 1.5 days with a completed gap analysis and continuous improvement plan. Come ready to work in a supportive environment, led by consultants who know their stuff and with fellow colleagues and peers who are on the same journey.

Prior to joining DSC, Ann led the transition of a national organisation to the NDIS, developing Core, Capacity Building & SDA services in trial and rollout sites. Ann has first-hand experience with system and process review, acquisitions, the integration of merged/acquired services and the NDIS registration process across four states,

Ann has established and run a number of social enterprises and her experience includes designing, creating and implementing new services and products across employment, accommodation, community inclusion and training.
