#2 The Early Years Workforce Strategy / Apps and products for sharing documentation

Lisa, Leanne and Liam are back again - and we've updated our name to better reflect our chats! This week, we discuss:

  • The end of the Early Years Workforce Strategy, how it has worked (or not worked) and what we’d like to see replace it; and
  • The rise of apps and software designed for early childhood centres to share “children’s learning” with families.

Recommendations

Leanne: One in 5 early childhood educators plan to leave the profession - a recent article from The Conversation highlighting current issues facing the early childhood profession.
