What is the Big Steps Campaign about?
I’m an educator, what can I do?
I’m a parent/carer, what can I do?
There are a number of things families can do to show their support for the campaign, as well as keep abreast of all the news. To start with, talk to your child’s educators, as they will know if there any upcoming events/actions that you can attend or help them organise.
You should also join up to the Parenthood, an organisation that supports Big Steps and campaigns on early childhood issues. Also, make sure you’re following the Big Steps Campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I'm so grateful for the scholarship opportunity, to access the online lessons at no cost – to a conference which I did not know about before Big Steps Professional Learning! In this time of COVID-19 filling in time that connects me to my workplace learning makes me feel like I'm still working.
I can not express how much i am enjoying my experiences with Big Steps Professional Learning. Everything you do is amazing!
It was great to have an opportunity to have free access to such a great workshop. Grateful that the union is providing these opportunities to help further and enhance my career in ece. I was able to put my hand up willingly to do this workshop without any encouragement from management at my centre.
I would just like to thank Big Steps Professional Learning for the opportunity, and will continue to apply for similar professional learning opportunities!
The courses are very useful and practical. Not only they are good for professional development but also personal development such as our own wellness.
A wide range of presenters from all across Australia. I also really appreciated that Big Steps scholarship winners were able to have extended access to the presentations.
