Nautilus Training firmly believes in the value of feedback and has taken steps to ensure that materials evaluation sheets and employer/student satisfaction surveys are obtained and carefully reviewed, in order to determine the quality of both the materials and the learning they support, as well as to identify any opportunities for improvement. The continuous improvement system used by Nautilus Training also provides a conduit for its training staff and all the various users, to propose further refinements and improvements.
In addition, Nautilus Training’s marketers, and curriculum researchers and developers, are in regular contact with the childcare services where the materials are in use, checking to ensure that every aspect is consistent with the realities of day-to-day workplace practices.
Constantly reviewing and improving the material helps to ensure that it contains only the most current, reliable and soundly proven information. Recent developments in areas concerned with early childhood, such as cognitive psychology and early brain development, are included in the information provided and as new discoveries are tried and tested, they make their way into the content. Also, changes associated with shifts in the regulatory, licensing and accreditation areas are accommodated in the refinement process.
The ability that the material has, to build up into an extensive information resource for trainees to continue to refer to, long after the completion of their training, has often been favourably commented upon, by both trainees and their supervisors.
Nautilus Training & Curriculum Pty Ltd believes that these materials represent a fresh approach to meeting the needs of the learners in the childcare workplace, the children’s services industry, the marketplace and, most importantly, the families and children who use the services.
