In 2024, the department is delivering new events to support Victoria’s early childhood leaders in their continued implementation of the Best Start, Best Life reforms. As part of this work, we’re introducing the Best Start, Best Life Evening Leadership Series.

The series will provide valuable expertise and advice to service leaders on how to prepare their teams and communities for these nation-leading reforms. Each event will feature highly regarded guest speakers, including leaders in early childhood education and care, researchers, and leadership experts.

This year’s events will be available in-person and online and take place in terms 1 and 4, 2024. They are designed to complement the popular Early Learning Leadership Forums, which are scheduled for terms 2 and 3 this year.

Keep a look-out for further details about these leadership forums, as well as registration details for the Term 4, 2024, events in our leadership series.
