Quality Assurance Framework for Workforce Australia
IHCA Certification specialises in the health, community and support sectors and we understand your organisation, your staff and your customers. We work closely with you in planning your assessment. We are also able to provide you certification services for ISO 9001 and NSDS to reduce your business disruption and optimise the assessment experience.
The Quality Assurance Framework contains 7 quality principles with key performance metrics:
- Labour market, Employers and community;
- Operational effectiveness; and
- Continual improvement.
Certification / recertification audit
The first year of certification / recertification, providers must complete a self-assessment against the quality principles and undergo an onsite assessment. All 7 quality principles are assessed.
Surveillance audits are completed in years two and three and comprise a self-assessment review and onsite assessment. Fifty per cent of the key performance metrics are assessed.
IHCA Certification will provide you with the final Quality Principles Report for you to submit to the Department along with the completed self-assessment and your ISO 9001:2015 or NSDS-DES report. Following the satisfactory close-out of any corrective actions (if applicable), your certification will be awarded by the Department.
