  1. Professional Experience Council

    I have been a TAFE teacher for the past 17 years with a particular interest in work placement. I continually work towards providing our students with a work place experience that provides them with opportunities to acquire skills as well as authentically reflect their current abilities, strengths and knowledge. Where possible I try to facilitate an experience that is positive for the student as well as the families, children and stakeholders at the early childhood service that they are attending. It is essential in the current environment to prepare our students adequately for the workplace to try and stall the shocking attrition rate of new employees. The quality of our educators and the “best fit” for them and the profession depends on this essential aspect of training.

    Besides my undergraduate training and workplace experience (long day care, family day care and pre-school) I have a Master’s Degree in early childhood and adult education from Macquarie university (2007).

    If you require a full application, please let me know and I will forward.

    Thank you for this opportunity

  2. Please pass on my apologies, unfortunately I wont be able to attend the meeting.
    Regards,
