The College's Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) program complements and formalizes the ongoing professional learning many RECEs do every day.
"Engaging in ongoing professional learning is important to early childhood educators. It is part of the culture of the profession and an integral component of both professionalism and leadership.
The CPL program is a framework and formal process to help RECEs increase their knowledge and skills and ensure quality professional practice throughout their careers. It also communicates to employers, families and the public that RECEs are members of a distinct profession that values ongoing professional learning." College of ECE
The AECEO will continue to develop resources to support early childhood educators to fulfill their Continuous Professional Learning requirements and better understand the process.
