Career Promotions & Recruitment Strategy (2007)

The Career Promotions & Recruitment Strategy project ran from February 2006 to January 2007. The project focused on creating a strategy designed to address the sector’s recruitment and retention challenge, specifically:

  • Documenting recruitment and retention needs of employers, trainers, national and provincial child care organizations.
  • Identifying key challenges in attracting and retaining a skilled early childhood education and care workforce.
  • Documenting perceptions of how careers in ECEC were perceived by key influencers and potential target audiences.
  • Identifying options for addressing recruitment and retention and skills challenge.

This project resulted in one final report:

Downloading, copying, and distributing CCHRSC resources

Despite the dissolution of the CCHRSC it is hoped that the CCHRSC`s research and tools will continue to be widely used to advance human resources issues in the sector. In turn, all organizations and individuals conducting research and/or offering ECE training, professional development, and other workforce development initiatives are authorized to download, copy, and distribute CCHRSC documents as needed, provided no fees are charged to end users and provided appropriate acknowledgements are made. Organizations and individuals are not authorized to download, copy, and distribute CCHRSC materials for profit. Any person or organization requiring clarification or consent to the use of such material should contact the CCHRSC Trust
