NT Assessors Required: an ideal professional development activity

QIP was recently awarded the provision of assessments under the NT Quality and Safeguarding Framework for disability service providers in the Northern Territory, which are registered as part of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), by the Northern Territory Government.

As QIP will be undertaking a significant amount of work in the Northern Territory, we are currently inviting expressions of interest in contracted assessor roles with QIP.

QIP Assessors are contracted to undertake accreditation assessments of health and community organisations across the Northern Territory.

The assessor role is an ideal professional development activity, resulting in skill enhancement and increased knowledge sharing – which is of benefit to both the individual and primary workplace of the contractor. The QIP Assessor role ensures flexibility for contractors, while providing the opportunity for organisations releasing staff to benefit from insight into how other organisations o­­­perate, the ability to network with other professionals, and contribute to enhanced standards of services to surrounding communities.

QIP Assessors are required to undertake a minimum of two assessments per year (which equates to approximately a four day commitment in total each year), with additional assessments allocated on individual availability and capacity. Many organisations treat this role as one of continuous professional development, for which their staff are also financially rewarded.

QIP provides training and mentoring in all of the associated frameworks and ongoing development in their practical application.

QIP is currently establishing an office in Darwin and recruiting QIP Assessors from local quality-focused organisations will also help to enhance our team’s understanding of regional issues and result in knowledge sharing across the Northern Territory.

If you or any of your staff or stakeholders have significant experience working within the community health, disability or tertiary health sectors, and are interested in mentorship, quality improvement and supporting their community, we request that you to please inform them of this recruitment.
