A national program of EYLF Professional Learning Workshops were held in rural, regional and metropolitan areas from March to August 2011. The goal of the workshops was to deepen educators’ understanding of the EYLF and build their capacity to implement it in their settings. The workshops provided opportunities for professional conversation and reflection, with the potential to improve EYLF delivery and outcomes in an ongoing way. All participants received copies of the six ECA EYLF publications plus the ECA Code of Ethics. These provided tangible ongoing support for the implementation of the EYLF.
To make sure that nobody misses out on important resources, some of the Workshop resources are now available for free download. A guide to how these may be used to deliver the EYLF PLP Workshops to staff in services is provided in EYLF PLP e-Newsletter No. 20. The Thinking about practice: Working with the Early Years Learning Framework planner resource written by Jenni Connor, is the focus of EYLF PLP e-Newsletter No. 21.
