“CompliSpace is where everyone in our school goes for anything from a leave form to petty cash, from logging an incident to a compliment or complaint. We don’t have to track down a form in the staff room, we just click through and get it. We call it our ‘Single source of school truth.’”

This weekly newsletter is the Australian school sector’s leading news and information source on issues related to governance, risk management, compliance and policy management.
Essential reading for principals, bursars, business managers, senior staff and board members of schools wanting to remain informed on the latest developments on the governance front and to generally keep up to date on what’s happening in schools in Australia and overseas.
CompliSpace has developed a detailed Enterprise Risk Management Program specifically for the education sector based on the International Standard for Risk Management (AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009).
Our team will work with you to tailor the program to your specific risk profile, and help you to establish a framework to assist you to manage the Risk Management Process and ensure that information about risk is adequately captured and reported to be used as a basis for decision making and accountability at all relevant organisational levels.
Integrated Risk Management functionality will give you the ability to:
CompliSpace works with schools to implement simple and sustainable solutions that provide peace of mind that regulatory requirements are covered and confidence that policies and procedures are correct, up to date, and effectively communicated to staff.
Schools have described CompliSpace as “A single source of knowledge” and as “Taking the dusty handbook from the shelf and bringing it to life for staff and students.”
Our team have mapped key documents required for registration/accreditation across all states and territories. These documents have been maintained in line with the relevant Authorities’ requirements and will assist you with preparing for registration now and on an ongoing basis, to help you stay ‘continuously compliant’.
Our clients have told us that CompliSpace has saved them a considerable amount in time and resource costs spent on registration.
We get it, managing and keeping policies up-to-date is hard work!
We take the pain out of ad-hoc policy review projects by assisting you with undertaking a gap analysis and providing a library of best-practice and legally compliant policies and procedures that will assist you to review and implement in layers based on priority.
The biggest resource benefit to you is that we will be able to refocus your current efforts to tailoring the content as appropriate to the school rather than researching and drafting it from scratch.
On an ongoing basis, we will help you maintain policies and procedures through our updates – this will again help your resources focus on the practical implementation of key policies at the staff level rather than trying to monitor and maintain policies in a manual or ad hoc way.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to working with groups because types of groups vary – from centralised control systems to light-touch governance governing bodies to affiliated groups of schools.
At the heart of each group is the knowledge that the governance, risk and compliance challenges faced by member schools are increasing and each group is committed to supporting schools with addressing these challenges.
CompliSpace works with groups of all shapes and sizes to develop tailored solutions. Some common benefits include:
There is no typical package when it comes to implementing a tailored governance, risk, compliance and policy management solution, but our recommendation to clients is to start small, with a focus on key drivers.
In our experience, key drivers tend to be ‘Enterprise Risk’ or ‘People Risk’.
Clients with a focus on ‘Enterprise Risk’ start with an Enterprise Risk Management and Compliance Program that will help them to identify and implement tools to manage risk and compliance from the top down.
Clients with a focus on ‘People Risk’ tend to start with implementing programs to assist them with managing policies, procedures, risk and compliance obligations arising from Workplace Health & Safety, Student Duty of Care and Child Protection.
CompliSpace includes a training tool so that you can provide training, track completion and results.
