Future Tracks has engaged dandolopartners, a consulting firm, to undertake a research project on supporting Early Childhood Teacher (ECT) graduates as they enter the workforce. We would like to speak directly with recent ECT graduates who are working (or have worked) in an ECT role since graduation. We want to understand the challenges you face, support you receive, and opportunities for improvement.

We have two opportunities for you to engage with us. You are welcome to join both activities if you would like to.

Online focus groups:

We are looking for ECT graduates to join a one hour online focus group. This will be a small group discussion guided by questions about your experiences as a recent ECT graduate. Each group will have approximately 8-15 participants. Participants will receive a $30 Coles Myer gift card. There are two times available for participation:

  • Friday 5th June from 12pm – 1pm
  • Tuesday 9th June from 3.30pm – 4.30pm

To find out more information and register for an online focus group, please contact Michelle Stratemeyer (

Discussion forums: 

We are looking for ECT graduates to join a discussion forum. The discussion forum will run from Tuesday 9th June to Friday 12th June. A question will be posted each morning to prompt discussion, and follow up questions may be asked throughout the day. Participants are free to respond as much or as little as they would like during the 4 day period. This forum will be anonymous.
