Welcome, this week the results of a review into the quality of training being offered in the early childhood sector and a selection of Father's Day craft activities which make great gift ideas.
Results of Review into Early Childhood RTOs
Most registered training organisations (RTOs) offering qualifications in early childhood education and care struggle to comply with assessment requirements according to a review by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).

ASQA, the government body responsible for ensuring training standards are maintained, conducted an audit of a sample group of 77 RTOs, which represents about a third of the organisations delivering training in early childhood education and care, and found that 75 per cent were not able to demonstrate full compliance with the standards required for delivering training in this area.

However, given a period of time to rectify their areas of non-compliance most were able to demonstrate full compliance at the end of the audit period.

ASQA chief commissioner Chris Robinson said all but two of the RTOs that remained non-compliant following ASQA's regulatory action had now either stopped offering training in early childhood education and care or left the training sector all-together.

Craft ideas for Father's Day
Father's Day is happening on Sunday 6 September this year, what better way to celebrate then with a special home made gift? These simple ideas are suitable for all ages and will melt the heart of all the dads in your service.

Foam photo frame - Quick, easy and totally mess free. This super fun activity is great for a last minute gift idea.

Spare change tray - Bring new life to a polystyrene tray with a bit of paint and some stick on bling. These little trays can be used for keys, coins and anything else that has a habit of getting lost.

Photo coaster - Use a colour printer and some old CDs to create a long lasting gift that dads will love.

Picture frame - You'll need a bit of gear for this activity so start planning for this activity in early august. The results are great and the kids will enjoy experimenting.

Shirt and tie card - Smaller kids may need help with folding the paper but enjoy decorating the tie to glorious effect.

Tie painting - Children who are too young to decorate a card in the activity above may prefer painting a tie on a big piece of paper.

Can cooler - The perfect accompaniment to a Summer's day. Use craft foam and glue to make this great gift.

Garden decorations - Use plaster of Paris as the base for these awesome garden decorations which should stand the test of time.

Handprint crafts - Handprint crafts are especially wonderful for younger kids and can be turned into gifts with the addition of a poem or by being stuck onto a card.
