Leadership in Early Childhood: Social Policies and Social Systems - ECH453

The unit examines the roles of leaders and advocates within the broader early childhood profession. Looking at local, national and international perspectives we analyse the effectiveness of a range of advocacy strategies and seek ways to better understand how early childhood teachers can develop their advocacy effectiveness. Students undertake individual and group work to plan an advocacy campaign based on an area of their professional interest. They develop skills in marketing, communication and the use of technology to sharpen their advocacy approach. This unit will be of interest to all students who wish to extend their professional capacity in the areas of leadership and advocacy.
