The Thriving Futures Project
Thriving Futures is empowering the Pilbara communities of Hedland and Newman to shape the future of up and coming generations. We’re working to improve developmental outcomes for children by supporting communities to grow, thrive and reach their full potential through high quality early learning experiences.
This begins with training, recruiting and retaining a quality, sustainable early learning workforce.
Proudly funded by BHP and led by not-for-profit organisation Child Australia, Thriving Futures is an early learning workforce development program that’s working collaboratively with local government departments, agencies and organisations to maximise online and onsite training, support and development opportunities in the sector.
For qualified early learning educators and leaders, we’re creating more training opportunities for furthering your professional career and your significant positive impact on the lives of others.
For locals seeking to enter or re-enter the workforce, we’re offering funded scholarships opportunities and can provide advice on subsidised training courses available to you with local registered training organisations. We’ll even give you guidance to prepare your CV and support to navigate the job application process.
We strongly encourage school leavers, the indigenous community and workplace programs, parents re-entering the workforce, or mature-aged workers looking to reinvigorate their careers to register their interest.
For early learning centres, we’re here to help you establish formal mentoring and training programs and, ultimately, improve the quality and stability of your early learning workforce.
And for communities, we’re committed to creating thriving futures – developing the health, wellbeing and learning for generations to come.
