This two part event will be facilitated by Suzana O’Callaghan and Matt Pitt from Jas-ANZ in November 2022 and early 2023.  Events will run independent of each other, so you can choose to attend one or both events.

Their purpose is to: 

  • Enable providers to be discerning and informed users of Approved Quality Auditors (AQAs) 
  • Promote provider understanding of the AQA scheme, the conformity assessment  and your rights (eg sampling, duration, proportionality and audit methodology)
  • Provide tools to assist/help guide with elements regarding choosing an AQA, how the cost of an audit is determined, report quality and what to expect of audit team composition

Who Should Attend?

This workshop has been developed for senior leaders and quality managers from disability service providers.
