Designed for educators and leaders looking to enhance relationships with colleagues, children and families.

Our Professional Development workshops have been designed by industry experts for early childhood education and care services, outside school hours care services and all services in scope of the National Quality Framework (NQF) throughout Australia.

Every workshop provides a practical, hands-on approach for all levels of experience and qualification to support the NQF outcomes and assist your staff in their ongoing learning and practices. We understand that the education sector is ever changing and competitive, and we need to continuously upgrade service standards and therefore upskill staff in their skills and knowledge! An investment in professional development, as well as being required under the National Quality Standard, has a range of benefits for education and care services.

  • It allows staff to achieve personal and workplace goals.
  • It enables staff and providers to be confident in their ability to comply with professional regulatory obligations.
  • It enables staff to maintain and improve their professional competence by keeping abreast of new technology, theory, requirements and practice.
  • It has a significant positive impact on staff retention.
  • It contributes towards increased value and respect for sector professionalism.
