Background of the SAEW Project

To address workforce capacity and capability constraints in the ECEC sector, the Victorian Government has allocated funding for the Skilling an Adaptable Early Childhood Education and Care Workforce (SAEW) project.

With this funding ELAA, in partnership with Gowrie Victoria and The Y Ballart, have developed a series of specialised eLearning Training Modules to ensure early childhood educators can apply their skills and training in the workplace that meets the learning and developmental needs of children and the workforce requirements of employers across the ECEC sector.
