ECW is the peak professional body for the education and care workforce. Membership is open to all individuals working in education and care. As an education and care professional the work you do is not always visible or valued. ECW is working to get you the professional recognition you deserve.

Your support enables us to give educators in the education and care workforce a voice. Through nationwide advocacy, exposure and access to affordable ongoing learning opportunities. By choosing membership with ECW you are recognising and demonstrating your professionalism and commitment to a positive vision for the future of the education and care profession.

Professional Membership promotes professional recognition and brings Educators together for a collective purpose.

At ECW we believe that you and the work you do educating and caring for our youngest citizens, changes lives for the betterment of us all. We also believe that you are part of a larger professional village and by coming together with a vision to connect with other Education and Care professionals, willing to share their knowledge and expertise with each other our profession will be stronger and our voices will be louder.

Working together to share our professional knowledge, skills and practice wisdom will grow our collective knowledge and raise our professional profile.

Change takes time and commitment and for us to realise the future we see for our profession we need you, as disclosed in a popular African proverb – ‘If you want to go fast go alone, If you want to go far go together’.

When we work together we can make the difference we want to see. Margaret Simms summed it up beautifully when she said, ‘We are the drivers of Education and Care, Let’s take it somewhere exciting’.
