Notice of Assessment
Assessment and Rating
Exceeding through Social Justice
The musical opens when the Coordinator (Louise) receives the Notice of Assessment from the Department.
The Educational Leader (Red) faints in response.
The Coordinator supports Red to look at the A&R process as an opportunity to “sell your pedagogy” and encourages her to ensure that her Quality Improvement Program (QIP) is a simple and user-friendly document. Lou reminds Red to continually reflect on her pedagogical practice whilst engaging with the performing arts and promoting social justice.
In an all singing all dancing extravaganza, dynamic dramaturgical early childhood thespians, Red and Louise present a splendiferous, spectacular, salubrious engagement with the NQF.
Grounded in Theories, Practice and Embodied Pedagogies, this piece of professional development is based on the following questions:
What counts as valid knowledge?
And in whose interest are they enacted?

Dr Red Ruby Scarlet and Louise Dorrat have been working in early childhood for over 30 years. They also have qualifications in drama and dance. Together they combine their experience and expertise in early childhood curriculum, systems, social justice and the creative and performing arts to create innovative and inclusive approaches to professional learning.
Louise and Red first met via social media and they instantly could tell they were fellow dynamic dramaturgical thespians! Lou asked Red to sing and dance in the closing number at a conference 5 years ago, meeting for the first time at rehearsal.
The rest is early childhood musical history!
