Team Development and Leadership
Early Childhood Professional Development
A strong team is at the heart of all successful work.
Life Learning work with individual teachers and the leadership group to get the best out of your team – whether it be welcoming new team members or the professional development of current staff. When we invest in people and help them turn their qualifications into best practice teaching we can help improve the quality of education across the entire early childhood sector.
We all need role-modelling from time to time and the opportunity to learn from those experienced teachers who have come before us. By developing teachers who are passionate about creating amazing learning environments, we build a high performing team and a dynamic learning culture.
As we like to say: coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress, and working together is success.
Professional Development – Mentoring and Coaching
Life Learning work with you to ensure you have the right people in the right place to run an effective and highly recognised early childhood centre. Our approach to employment is always aimed at identifying talent and bringing out the best in people.
At the end of the day, the most important employment consideration is not necessarily qualification or talent but right-fit for your unique learning environment.
We will help you:
- Develop meaningful job descriptions that attract the right people
- Develop effective interviewing methods
- Develop introduction programmes
Our professional development opportunities help teachers improve their knowledge and skills.
We provide strategies that enrich whole team environments or individuals within each team. If you are not being role modelled by someone either inside your work environment or outside it, then it becomes harder to develop professionally.
Life Learning has the skills, experience and passion to help introduce best practice to enhance the child’s learning every step of the way and to grow educators both personally and professionally.
We offer a range of courses and customised staff development.
Teacher Coaching and Mentoring
Our coaching and mentoring programmes assist teachers in their educational journey. We work alongside individuals and teams to assist teachers to be their very best.
Research shows that teachers who are coached and mentored are more motivated, enthusiastic, experience higher job satisfaction, and stay in teaching longer.
We have experience with mentoring and coaching both beginner teachers and experienced teachers since early 2003.
