  • improve the retention of early career ECTs
  • increase sector engagement and partnerships in the development of workforce solutions
  • increase the capacity of early childhood sector to respond to workforce retention issues.

Consortiums can apply and may include partnerships with non-early childhood organisations, provided an approved Victorian early childhood service that meets all the eligibility criteria is nominated as the lead organisation.

Organisations can apply now until 2pm 21 June 2021 via the Department of Education and Training’s website. Eligibility criteria apply.
