EYLF learning for support staff and sector stakeholders
Specific EYLF sessions are available for support staff including Inclusion Support Facilitators (ISFs) and Professional Support Services Providers (PSSPs).
Information sessions are also available for local government departments, RTOs and tertiary institutions.
EYLF Embedding in Practice
EYLF professional development sessions are available varying from one hour, full day and multi-session comprehensive courses. These sessions are delivered to assist educators to make sense of the EYLF, and provide opportunities to explore what the EYLF looks like in their education and care setting and how to explore curriculum with other educators. Professional development is also available to support Educational Leaders in their role of leading the educational program and engaging educators.
All professional development delivered by PSCs is consistent with and refers to the EYLF. A range of ongoing professional learning seminars linking to the EYLF are available from entry level to advanced to supporting all educators across Australia.
PSCs provide a range of professional development, support and resources to support services to embed the Early Years Learning Framework into their practice. Professional development can be fully customised for all service types and team needs.
The PSCs regularly collaborate on EYLF resources and professional development opportunities through the National PSC Alliance.
