Joining forces with Big Roles in Little Lives

They say it takes a village to raise a child. At One Tree, we believe that educators are a key part of every family’s village. While parents are always a child’s first teacher, early education professionals work alongside families to support children to develop, connect, learn, play, and grow. Educators play a big role in the lives of little children. The work they do is invaluable, educators are professionals who give back to children, families, communities and support the economy by helping parents return to work.

We’re proud to be teaming up with the Early Learning and Care Council of Australia (ELACCA) to highlight early education professionals once again. Our CEO, Karri Hillier, was invited to join ELACCA earlier this year. Now, One Tree is supporting the ‘Big Roles in Little Lives’ campaign that ELACCA is running in partnership with providers across the country.

We’re proud to be joining an initiative that brings early education providers together to collaborate and find answers to the sector workforce crisis. Plus, we love seeing our sector and its people in the spotlight.

The Big Roles in Little Lives campaign

Unless you’ve worked as an educator or in the early childhood sector, it’s difficult to understand the possibilities, opportunities for growth and fun a career in early learning offers. The Big Roles in Little Lives campaign aims to show job seekers, career-shifters, and new graduates just how much they can gain from a career in the sector. We’ll give you a hint: purpose, job satisfaction and career security are all part of the deal.

The newest stage of the campaign will focus on traineeships and career paths for high school students and graduates. As a Registered Training Organisation, we’re excited to help promote traineeship opportunities along with other Australian service providers.

For us at One Tree, we’re proud of our traineeship program. We offer training to students in regional areas as well as city centres. We work hard to make sure students in remote communities don’t miss out too. Our unique model of training local staff on Country, rather than requiring trainees to come into towns, is proving very successful.

How can you get involved Big Roles in Little Lives?

If you’re interested in a career in early education, the Big Roles in Little Lives quiz is a great place to start. It only takes eight questions to find out if you’re a good fit for a career in early learning.

If you already work in the sector, following ELACCA and Big Roles in Little Lives on social media will keep you in the loop. Don’t forget to share updates with people who might be interested in working in the sector.
