Thought-Provoking Professional Learning

In 2021, Gowrie NSW is excited to present a high-quality calendar of events that combines international and local presenters who will provide the space for new thinking and inspiration to enhance teaching and learning practice.

Our programs are embedded in the foundations of empowerment, respectful relationships, intentional play-based learning and practitioner inquiry.

We look forward to having you join us throughout 2021 to engage in your own ongoing professional learning.

By learning together, we will contribute to shaping the lived experience and lives of children and the next generation.

What to expect from our 2021 learning program

This year we have partnered with respected leaders in their fields from across Australia and internationally to bring you a rich variety of professional learning opportunities.

From short webinars to online multi-part workshops to interactive Q & A sessions with practitioners in the field, we have a diverse range of options to connect with other early and middle childhood professionals.

Our professional learning program focuses on fostering a sense of community and space for learning together, revisiting thinking and reflection, and supporting you to translate this thinking into practice.

At Gowrie NSW we are committed to supporting the sector to succeed and aim to support you to meet your vision and goals for providing exceptional education and care environments for young children and their families.
