Tasmania needs childcare workers

10 May 2015 by News Desk

job_vacancy_01Tasmania’s childcare industry is trialing new ways to attract higher quality staff.

Goodstart Early Learning general manager Chris Symons said it is vital to encourage promising young students to consider a career in early childhood education. “We’ve had a large turnover of staff with the introduction of the new national quality standards but we’ve also raised the bar in terms of what we’re doing in education,” he said.

Under a new scheme, apprentices are being recruited to work in childcare centres across the state and Goodstart Early Learning hope to double the number of apprentices next year.

A new campaign has been launched that aims to win pay rises of up to 70 per cent across the childcare industry, which would increase the starting salary to $47,000.
