WORKER (TEACHER) DATA
The 2011 worker data elements are used to describe the ECEC workforce and to provide information to assess Performance Indicator 2 under the National Partnership Agreement on Early Childhood Education (The number of teachers delivering preschool programs who are four year university trained and early childhood qualified).
At the broadest level, the scope includes all persons working within an ECEC service, irrespective of whether they deliver a preschool program, or whether they are paid or unpaid. The diagram below shows the sequencing of data elements in order to capture the necessary information for workers who are within the collection scope.
It is important for jurisdictions to follow the hierarchy of this table when reporting worker related data for the National ECEC Collection, as it will assist in defining when data elements apply to a particular worker.
All jurisdictions are requested to supply URL worker data, irrespective of their ability to supply child level data at URL. A separate worker URL data request template has been supplied to those jurisdictions that are providing aggregate level child data.
