How will you create culturally-sensitive connections between centres? Will there be pathways and incentives for a more diverse ECE educator workforce?
Yes, we would like to see more community members accessing ECE training as part of the integrated approach. For example, rather than teacher-led services comprising 100% qualified staff, TOP would propose that a proportion of the staff (up to 20%) be parents/whānau members in training or student teachers, and that these members are viewed as equal members of the education partnership/collective/team, so that a diversity of perspectives is celebrated.
