Recruitment and retention (with Melissa Armstrong)
Oct 18th, 2019 by earlyedushow
This episode, we’re taking a look at one of the biggest frustrations out there in the sector - recruitment and retention. With subsidies flowing and the market-model growing, Australia’s early education sector needs more educators and teachers than ever before. But with TAFEs and Unis producing less graduates, and turnover rates not getting any better, we seem to be facing a growing crisis in how to actually ensure professional and qualified educators are working in services.
To discuss all these issues, and more, Lisa and Liam are joined by Melissa Armstrong. Mel is the Director of Hamilton’s, a recruitment organisation based in NSW. Mel has a background as an Early Childhood Educator and Teacher, including working as a Centre Director.
