Report: Upskilling in Early Childhood Education

Commissioned by Future Tracks and The Front Project, this piece of research shows there is a significant opportunity to upskill diploma-qualified educators to meet demand and improve quality in early learning centres.

The report Upskilling in Early Childhood Education highlights the real and perceived barriers educators experience in taking on bachelor-degree study.

It recommends a number of ways in which early childhood education providers, governments and universities can help educators to upskill.
