Struggling to interpret the NDIS practice standards? You’re not alone!
This series of workshops is designed to build your knowledge and confidence in applying the NDIS practice standards. Learn from our experts and hear what other organisations are doing.
This hands-on, practical workshop is designed for small groups of like minded organisations to work together in documenting their evidence against the standards. Finish each session with a good understanding of the evidence you have to meet the standard and progress toward your 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.
Here's how it works:
Enrol in your choice of modules
Come to one or come to all. Each session runs for 2.5 hours and will open 30 mins early for participants that have questions about the previous module they completed.
Work through DSC's Gap Analysis tool
Each participant will receive a gap analysis tool (for all modules) that they can work on throughout and between sessions
Practically exploring the standards
DSC will work through each standard, give examples of practical application, share resources and facilitate group activities to share evidence ideas.
Jess has worked in the community space for almost 2 decades across a broad range of roles including direct care, case management, coordination/management, quality assurance, policy, training, tender writing and as an unpaid carer. Her diverse experience has strengthened her flexible communication style, capacity to process, map and empathise with people interacting with the social, community and health systems at different points.
Jess takes a thorough and methodical approach to interpreting complex funding and audit guidelines, pre-empting questions and identifying any gaps in an organisation's position. Jess doesn’t talk like a typical QA officer though, she has vast experience producing documentation and systems that break down legislation and policy and believes that if quality and safeguarding arrangements are going to have effect they need to work on the ground. The stuff Jess produces is clear, simple to use, drives organisational efficiency and, most importantly, leads to better service.

We want to maintain the intimacy of our face-to-face sessions and allow people to feel free to share their concerns and challenges so we’ve decided not to record the sessions.
