Consultation on a ten year national workforce strategy

In December 2019, Education Ministers endorsed the development of a new national workforce strategy as a joint partnership between all governments, the children‘s education and care sector, and other key stakeholders. ACECQA, on behalf of all governments, is coordinating the development of the new strategy.

Throughout May 2021, we want your views on actions and initiatives that you believe will assist in improving the supply, retention and quality of the sector workforce. It is important to emphasise that the success of the national workforce strategy will rest on meaningful collective action from all stakeholders. It is also important to emphasise that the potential opportunities for collective action included in the consultation document are suggestions only at this stage – they are not exhaustive, and require further consideration, discussion and agreement on timescales, roles, responsibilities and implementation.

This consultation period will provide valuable feedback to inform that process.
