Victorian Skills Commissioner releases Early Childhood Education and Care Sector Snapshot
The Victorian Skills Commissioner has developed and launched a Sector Snapshot for the Early Childhood Education and Care sector.
The Early Childhood Education and Care sector includes services that provide play-based education to young children. This snapshot primarily focuses on long day care services, but the sector also includes kindergarten, occasional care, outside school hours care (OSHC) and family day care.
This report provides an overview of the current and future skills and training requirements of the Early Childhood Education and Care sub-sector in Victoria, with a focus on the elements of the workforce using VET courses and their career pathways. It also considers the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the future jobs an skilling needs of the sector. The success of this work relied on insights from experienced employers.
The Early Childhood Education and Care Sector Snapshot is available at http://www.vsc.vic.gov.au/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Sector-Snapshot-Early-Childhood-Education-and-Care-1.pdf
