C&K Improving Educational Program Practice within Approved Early Childhood Education and Care Settings

Project Summary

QUT partnered up with C&K on a Reflective Practices Project to improve educational program practice within Approved Early Childhood Education and Care Settings. A pilot trial was conducted in 20 kindergarten and universal access services, both in metropolitan and regional areas. This included two full day face-to-face training sessions and two full day online training sessions. QUT researchers developed trained front-line Children’s Services team members in mentoring, coaching, and critical reflection. A number of resources were developed for the online platform and content expertise was provided to support the development of vignettes. QUT was also tasked with evaluating the Reflective Practices Project.
