Staffing the sector - the challenges we all face

Friday, February 3, 2023 13:30 - 15:00

Join us for a discussion on recruitment and retention, fair pay, funding and the future of qualifications.

Discussion points will address:

  • Why is the current situation around funding not working? What needs to change?
  • Is our sector qualified and knowledgeable enough? What gaps in training exist? How can these gaps be filled? 
  • How do we attract highly skilled educators into our settings? What do early years educators expect when stepping into a new role?
  • Are there any practical ways we can support the retention of staff? What has and hasn’t worked from experience?
