The Affinity Education
Quality Team


At Affinity Education, we thrive on excellence – from the way we implement our curriculum through to our commitment to safe, high-quality services. 

In addition to our world-class curriculum and Lifelong Learning approach, we have a keen focus on quality – this is why 80% of our centres are currently Meeting or Exceeding the National Quality Standards.

In the same way that our Education Team and Centre Teams employ the most passionate, knowledgeable and committed experts in their field, so too does our Quality Team. Affinity Education is proud to work with an exceptional team of professionals, who collectively bring almost 180 years of education, training, assessing, teaching and regulatory authority experience.

When we talk about Delivering Outstanding Professionalism, our Quality Team comes to mind. They go above and beyond to support our centres in their pursuit of excellence. From supporting the overall vision and execution of our internal quality processes to coordinating support for our centre teams as they navigate National Quality Standards, our Quality Team possesses a high skillset of industry knowledge and coaching abilities. 

What does our Quality Team look like in action?

Guided by Affinity Education Quality Manager Jodie McClelland, our national team of state-based Quality Advisors support the overall vision and execution of our quality process.  

  • Guiding centres as they prepare for their ACECQA Assessment & Rating. 

  • Supporting centres as they continually work to improve their ACECQA Assessment & Rating. 

  • Coordinating resources and support in areas of management and education. 

  • Applying industry knowledge and experience to integrate best-practices in centres and achieve high-quality outcomes for children. 

  • Identifying areas of opportunity for further improvement and growth.  


What makes our Affinity Education Quality Advisors so special? 

Our Quality Advisors are a natural people-person, who thrives when they can collaborate and work with others. They are detail-oriented – nothing gets past them! They are passionate about applying coaching techniques and best practice strategies to ensure positive health and wellbeing outcomes for every child. They have big-picture goals as well as laser-focus on the little details. But most of all – they are committed to inspiring and nurturing individuals to reach their full potential.
