Currently our face to face sessions are on hold, but we have developed a range of interactive and thought provoking online learning to help you through COVID-19 and continue your professional learning.

 

With reduced attendance across all service types, it is likely that many educators may not be required to physically work at the service or may do so on a rotational basis. A number of educators may have health matters that prevent them from attending work. In the event of a prolonged forced closure, whole teams may be working from home. Irrespective of the reason, productivity can be maintained through our online learning series.

 

Delivered in a variety of 2- 3 hour sessions or 2 part series, our online learning has been designed to provide information you need to know now, inspire ideas and further develop professional practice and build Teacher Accreditation hours.

 

We have developed new sessions to enable Nominated Supervisors and Approved Providers to navigate their responsibilities in relation to COVID-19, as well as training to support the wellbeing of early education professionals during this uncertain period.

 

We have also taken many of our popular courses and designed them to enable your continued learning. Sessions include:

“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of childhood into maturity.” – Thomas Henry Huxley
