$25.00$22.50 Member Price

The learner will explore the idea of professional identity in two ways— who you are and what you do. You will ponder notions of professionalism and your identity in early childhood education and care in relation to children, families, colleagues and the community. In addition to reflecting on identity, the learner will be asked to consider links between professional identity and the implications of professional ethics on your practice.

Please note: Participants will have opportunities to take part in robust conversations with colleagues  and reflect on the term professionalism. It is therefore helpful to work alongside a peer or mentor to fully engage in the intended learning of this webinar

Learning Objectives:
