With the very real teacher shortage in ECE, many of us are struggling to find good staff and fill vacancies.

This means we need to look at recruiting from overseas. But this can be a daunting and often overwhelming thought to add to our already jam packed work load.

There are always so many hoops to jump through, let alone the costs involved.

The government introduced the "Border Exemption Scheme" but this is now full.

The new Accredited Employer Work Visa scheme (AEWV) comes into effect on 4th July 2022.

So what is the AEWV?
And what does it mean for you as an employer needing staff now?

Michelle Pratt is a member of ECAC (the Early Childhood Advisory Committee) and an employer who has successfully recruited staff from overseas. 

Join us in this short webinar to learn from Michelle;

  • What the new AEWV scheme is.
  • Tips to support your AEWV application and start the wheels in motion for recruiting staff.
