The new draft methodology has been tailored to reflect the unique characteristics of hospital-based education and care services, and reflects ERO’s focus on a complementary approach to evaluation. The draft methodology draws on He Pou Tātaki, the review methodology for centre-based services, and Ngā Pou Here, the review framework in He Pou Tātaki.
This draft document is the result of a collaborative effort between ERO and representatives from hospital-based education and care services. The revised approach will support improved service performance and accountability, and focuses on how well placed hospital-based services are to contribute to children’s learning, and promote their wellbeing.
The draft methodology will be trialled in hospital-based education and care services scheduled for an ERO education review in Term 4, 2015, and feedback on the draft methodology will be sought from hospital-based services. ERO will finalise the document and publish it for use in all hospital-based education and care service reviews from 2016.
