Children’s Education and Care National Workforce Strategy

Commissioned by Education Ministers, and facilitated by ACECQA, national sector stakeholders and all Australian governments have closely collaborated to co-design a new ten-year workforce strategy to help ensure a sustainable, high-quality children’s education and care workforce. 
Shaping Our Future’ acknowledges and builds on the significant investment by all governments to date in workforce related initiatives, as well as a range of recent and ongoing initiatives launched by the sector. It provides a roadmap for ongoing collaboration and partnership between all parties, including governments, service providers, education and training providers, peak associations, regulatory bodies, and educators and teachers, and their representative bodies.
Implementing the strategy is a collective responsibility between all stakeholders. With the release of the Strategy, work will now commence with all governments and sector stakeholders to co-design implementation and evaluation plans to guide collaborative efforts to achieve the strategy’s objectives.
On behalf of governments, we would like to thank all stakeholders for their ongoing involvement, support and expertise, as well as their commitment to the actions contained within the Strategy.
