Sector Consultations wrap up for 2017

Sector Consultations wrap up for 2017

With a second round of sector consultation sessions recently completed for 2017, staff from the Early Childhood Education Directorate are reflecting on how much they enjoyed meeting and spending time with sector representatives who were able to attend the recent series of events.

Executive Director Tracy Mackey said it was great to put faces to names, learn more about the fantastic work happening across the state, and to see and hear the sector participating in some robust discussions.

“We welcome all the comments we receive, and appreciate the candid and transparent communication through these sessions,” Ms Mackey said. “It is refreshing to hear directly from people working in the sector so we can really consider whether our programs and policies are having an impact where it’s needed most.

“Throughout the next few weeks, we are continuing to review the information we captured from the sessions, and combining this with feedback gained from the current online survey.

“Early in the New Year, we will have a better picture on what resonated well, what’s working and what we need to change. We will then be best placed to provide further feedback on new initiatives resulting from the conversations we’ve had across the year,” Ms Mackey said.

If you attended a session in Oct/Nov, we’d appreciate if you could please complete the online survey if you haven’t done so already.

The survey closes COB Wednesday 20 December 2017.

It will only take 5 minutes to complete and your feedback will help us in planning the next round of consultations. If you registered for a session and were unable to attend, we’d also appreciate you completing that part of the survey.

Over the coming months we’ll be reviewing all feedback and will continue to keep you updated on how we are working to support the delivery of quality learning environments in the early childhood education sector.

Thank you for your participation and ongoing support of early childhood education.
