Building the Remote Early Childhood Workforce is a training initiative project that has been developed by the NT Department of Education and Children’s Services in partnership the BIITE.

This training project has been developed as an initiative under the NT Early Childhood Workforce Plan 2011-2021. The plan’s aim is to develop a high quality, sustainable workforce. The purpose of the Building the Remote Early Childhood Workforce project is to increase the number and quality of the local Aboriginal early childhood workforce in the participating remote communities. The initiative commenced as a pilot project in 2011 in four remote locations and contributes to a longer-term national objective to improve outcomes in Aboriginal early childhood development indicators.

The Building the Remote Early Childhood Workforce project aims to achieve an integrated local Aboriginal early childhood workforce, establish pathways for students transitioning from school to work, enable strong local services for young children and their families and provide consistency in early childhood training to remote communities.
