We are writing to inform you that the Pobal Compliance team will continue to conduct unannounced visits to ELC/SAC services that are operational over the summer months as outlined on the service calendars uploaded to the HIVE for the 2021/2022 programmes cycle. 

For those services still operating during the summer, please ensure that all records relating to other programmes which may have paused for the summer months (e.g. ECCE) are also available for review during such visits e.g. all ECCE Roll books /Attendance records, Fee records, Parent declarations etc.

The individual NCS and ECCE Compliance Checklists 2021/2022 are available under the Resources /Compliance section of the Hive. The CCSP Compliance Checklist 2021/2022 is available on PIP. These Checklists will assist in collating the relevant information that form part of a programmes compliance checks.
