Many early education programs are struggling to find qualified educators to fill open teaching positions. Join a group of your peers to explore strategies, current research, and creative solutions. Participants will complete a self-assessment and create action plans for their programs.

Cost: $25 for 3 sessions

Session One: Preparing to Hire What are the challenges? Am I ready to hire? What are my next steps? Making the pitch: Why should you come to work here? We will also explore creating job descriptions, pay, and benefits.

Session Two: Staff Recruitment What are the challenges? Would I want to work here? How do I effectively post a position? Should I be using social media or a hiring bonus? We will also discuss tips and tools for the interview process.

Session Three: New Staff Orientation and Retention What are the challenges? Would I want to stay here? What does the research say? We will also share staff orientation resources and staff engagement strategies.

Who Should Participate? Educators, Directors, and Administrators, and other staff involved in hiring staff in Infant/Toddler, Preschool, Family Child Care and Afterschool/Out of School Time (OST) programs
