The Australian Education and Care Workforce Professional Body’s mission is to advocate for and connect education and care practitioners across the sector as one profession, enabling practitioners to speak with one strong voice and to create a positive vision for the future health and wellbeing of Educators and the Education and Care workforce.
We recognise and acknowledge the practice wisdom that already exists within the profession and believe that by bringing practitioners together from across the sectors under one National Professional Body we can speak loudly and collectively to positively influence perceptions of the profession.
We strive to build skills, knowledge, capacity and confidence through open, honest, reflective professional discussions and sharing of practice stories, enabling practitioners to learn from each other and to grow their collective practice wisdom.
We work to promote the wealth of knowledge and expertise that exists within the profession by showcasing quality practices across the profession, raising the profile of Education and Care practitioners both within the profession and in the broader community.
Through fulfilling our mission, we will contribute to a sustainable education and care workforce that is well equipped to provide rich, nurturing learning environments for children delivered by highly skilled, reflective, confident, professionals, who are a highly regarded source of support and knowledge of children's development by colleagues, families and communities.
