Exciting new initiatives coming in Term 2 2023! Watch this space!
Teachers and Educators, be fully supported when you return to work
On behalf of the Victorian Department of Education, Gowrie is offering coaching to Early Childhood Professionals (teachers and educators) who are joining or returning to the ECEC sector in Victoria.
Gowrie coaches are all experienced coaches and early childhood practitioners offering current and lived experience of the sector. They will tailor the coaching process to meet the needs and circumstances of each individual, guide them to become familiar with relevant EC programs and frameworks and support them to connect with local EC networks.
The process begins by looking at the specific needs of the teacher or educator and what support they are looking for. This will help determine what coaching package would be most suitable (e.g. 10, 15 or 20 hours) and over what period. The coaching process will move through different phases and can include both face to face and online coaching sessions at times agreed by both the coach and the person being coached.
We are seeking expressions of interest to participate in the program starting in Term 2. If you are joining or returning to the Victorian sector and would like to find out more, click on the button, complete the form.

Our Coaching Culture
One of our key approaches is coaching. Coaching is a part of Gowrie’s culture, an approach that is core to our values and our own operating model. We support our own managers, leaders and teachers through training, information and tools to encourage reflective practice and adopt a coaching approach in a wide variety of interactions. We extend this approach in how we deliver our EC professional learning programs across Victoria. The program builds on what we already do within Gowrie, and what we already know works with our own educators and ECTs. We will put our tried and tested approach into practice to support ECTs joining or returning to the sector across Victoria.
