Exciting New Supports for Early Career Early Childhood Teachers


The Department of Education and Training (DET) is funding a series of professional learning and development programs that are available free-of-charge to Victorian early childhood teachers (ECTs) in their first five years of practice.

Free supports available include:

  • For first-year teachers - access to a minimum five hours of individual coaching
  • For second and third year teachers - Communities of Practice (CoP)
  • Alumni Network to help participating teachers stay connected and share their professional growth and expertise after participating in the coaching or CoPs programs
