Career Pathways – Early Childhood Roundtable

Career Pathways – Early childhood Roundtable

On the 12th of June, students interested in careers in the Early Childhood industry participated in the Ovens & Murray Roundtable discussion between early childhood educators, DoE representatives, State government, Local Learning & Employment Network, council members and staff & students from other local schools. Insight was gained from the students who are currently studying and experiencing Work Placement in the area of Early Childhood as they shared what is, and what is not working for them in terms of achieving their desired career.

RHS student representatives Ash Anderson, Keeley Moorehead & Tahlia Morley are to be commended for their invaluable contributions. All three were keen to be involved in discussions and activities on the day. It was wonderful to have such a great facilitator who gave all sectors a voice but kept bringing it back to the students so that all involved heard from ‘the key players’ their past and current experiences in school and in the workplace (Work Experience & Work Placement) and their aspirations in terms of study and career options and pathways.

Some feedback from DoE Jobs Skills & Pathways team – “Your students credited themselves extraordinarily well. They spoke up in a group of older people, provided great insights into their thinking as young people around pathways into Early Childhood Education, and generated fantastic ideas for us to consider re: an action plan from the Roundtable. The conversations between students and early years services were fantastic and we could hear students arranging work placements!”
