How Ideagen CompliSpace Helps Bethel Christian School Show Ongoing Compliance with Registration Standards
Bethel Christian School
The School’s implementation of Ideagen CompliSpace has vastly improved policy and incident management. This has become a catalyst for cultural change. Policy and practice are now closely aligned, thereby reducing many risks. Bethel, and in particular their Principal, Mim Butler, have embraced the CompliSpace solution and have implemented our Policy site and Assurance faster than any WA client school to date.
Bethel Christian School, established in 1981 with a mission to equip students in an environment where Christ is honored, emphasises the partnership between school, family, and church. Currently enrolling around 360 students from K-12, they introduced a senior secondary program in 2019.
Bethel Christian School has developed a good reputation amongst the wider Albany community, through its involvement in various academic, sporting, music, arts and civic activities, valuing the untapped potential in every student, nurturing diverse talents in a caring, collaborative environment.
Their thriving community upholds values like integrity, friendship, forgiveness, hard work, andChristian character.
Bethel Christian School engaged Ideagen CompliSpace to help bring consistency and transparency to the way it managed its policiesand compliance.
They were looking for a single source of truth to ensure that all staff knew where their policies could be found and that the policies were regularly updated, ensuring ongoing compliance.
Ideagen CompliSpace worked with Bethel Christian School to implement CompliSpace Education, which included:
Policy site for policy content and management.
Learning Management System
Learning Management System to manage and track compliance training, staff induction and professional development.
The School’s investment in Ideagen CompliSpace resulted in consistency and transparency in the way they managed their policies and procedures.

Benefits to the College
"Ideagen CompliSpace have helped us by streamlining our policy management by providing both up-to-date and easy-to-understand policy content as well as a management system that allowed us to upload our own school-specific content. Our School is now able to confidently provide evidence of ongoing compliance with registration standards and other requirements."

Centralised Policy Management
Before implementing the Policy site, the principal explained that policies were stored in numerous places at the school – from the website, to the hard copy handbook, to paper copies in files in the staff rooms or to staffs’ own hard drives.
This created confusion among staff about where to find policies and uncertainty about which policies were the most updated versions.
Simplified Staff Training
Staff are using the Learning Management System to complete policy and procedure training.
Training has been provided via this management system throughout the course of the implementation period in staff learning meetings and on teacher training days. The Staff have also been given access to and support with individual professional learning offsite, enabling continuous improvement.
Staff have undertaken or will be undertaking numerous online training sessions regarding Compliance with a particular focus on Child Protection, WHS, and Privacy.
