Educators and proud union members have worked tirelessly to have the Quality Matters message heard by the Productivity Commission in order to ensure Australian children get the best quality education and care. We made our submissions and attended the public hearings. We spoke up and stood together. And guess what? The Commission listened.
The draft Productivity Commission report contains significant changes based on our contributions. Next - we need to make sure that quality stays at the heart of our sector, and we need to ensure increased funding a help determine where the $5.5 billion goes. After all, quality means qualifications – and it means a stable workforce that’s valued for the essential work that we do.
But, we need your voice to make an impact. Send a message to your local MP right now and let them know that you support their proposal to fund childcare and that we are ready to work with them to make their package work and get it implemented – because no one knows ECEC better than us.
Have your voice heard. Take action right now.
