Leading and Managing Quality EC Services - EDEC3010

Year - 2020

Critical to a service's provision of quality early childhood education is effective management and strong leadership of the service and its pedagogy. To develop as effective leaders and managers, students will explore the differences between these roles, and theoretical approaches to leadership in the context of early childhood education. Students will be challenged and supported to critically reflect on what it means to provide quality early childhood education, and encouraged to develop a vision and philosophy that will drive their practice as a leader, manager, and teacher. In light of this vision and philosophy, and in the context of mixed-market provisioning, students will critically consider their legal and professional accountabilities as employees and employers, with particular attention paid to the National Quality Framework.
