Decent Work Communities of Practice (CoP)


 

What is Communities of Practice


A Decent Work Community of Practice (CoP) is a regional or local team working with the AECEO to build the Professional Pay and Decent work campaign in communities across the province.  These CoPs are self-managed learning groups that plan and implement actions to increase the visibility and effectiveness of the AECEO’s Professional Pay and Decent Work campaign.  
 

A CoP is meant to:  

  • Generate new knowledge 

  • Introduce collaborative processes

  • Connect people

  • Pilot initiatives

  • Share resources

  • Help organize people locally

  • Help to increase AECEO membership 
     

Starting a CoP or getting involved with an existing CoP can be a meaningful and enriching Continuous Professional Learning activity for ECEs and early years staff in Ontario.  The first step to creating a local CoP is to structure a team of individuals who want to take action for change!   
 

The CoPs act as an extension of the provincial body and work in collaboration with the AECEO in a geographic location throughout the province.
