Leading Continuity of Early Learning

Early childhood development is at the heart of the Victorian Government’s vision for the Education State. This course seeks to forge strong links between the early learning sector and the school system by acknowledging that a child’s educational outcomes benefit from a smooth and meaningful transition from early childhood settings to the school environment.

​​​​You benefit from active collaboration with education professionals from both sectors, forming a strong understanding of the advantages and challenges faced during transition. Through reflection upon your own practice and within a supportive environment, you lead change in your school or service to aid in the transition of children between early childhood and school.

The course incorporates AusVELS and key frameworks including the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) to support collaborative communication between early childhood, schools and relevant education professionals.
