JSA ECEC Capacity study

Jobs and Skills Australia, in partnership with HumanAbility, is completing a capacity study on the workforce needs of the Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) sector.

The study will identify and analyse occupations for each of the different parts of the sector, look at supply and demand factors and geographic considerations to help understand the issues impacting training and attracting and retaining ECEC workers. Stakeholder feedback closed in November 2023 with the Interim Report due to the Australian Government in February ahead of the Final Report in May. Click here to view the draft Terms of Reference.
