A focus on inclusion and staff professionalisation – recorded event

On 3 March 2021, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, launched an online event on early childhood education and care (ECEC) in Europe focusing on inclusion and staff professionalisation. 

After the adoption of a Council recommendation on high-quality ECEC systems in 2019, the ET 2020 Working Group on Early Childhood Education and Care has now published the result of its work: a toolkit for inclusion and a report on how to recruit, train and motivate well-qualified ECEC staff. 

The toolkit explores how decision-makers can foster inclusive ECEC systems through a range of policy measures and practices which benefit all children, regardless of their individual or family circumstances. 

It recognises that some children, such as those with disabilities or a migrant background, may benefit from more targeted policies and measures to ensure their specific needs are met.
