Requirements for Policies
In addition to documenting governance and organisational arrangements, the NESA TAA Guidelines require each TAA to have policies and procedures, as relevant across ten policy areas. This requirement may be addressed by documentation that covers more than one policy area, but all ten policy areas must be covered through the totality of the documentation. Each of the ten policy areas also requires documented procedures that describe how each policy is implemented. Procedures will typically provide details of what is done, by whom, how and when.
It is imperative that TAAs draft policies and procedures that reflect the actual circumstances and practices of the TAA and the school and/or EC service for which they make accreditation decisions.
