Abstract

The early years workforce is in the midst of professionalisation; in many cases moving towards a graduate-led workforce. In Europe this is reflected by the introduction of a new Masters in Early Childhood. Aline-Wendy Dunlop discusses the implications for Scotland when looking beyond a graduate-level workforce and considering how to provide ongoing professional development opportunities.
