Our Events

Designed using adult learning principles of education, exposure & experience.

Astute professional learning and development events will ensure that the investment in your people will be returned to you tenfold.

Our events are designed for early years professionals to:
  • learn new things, challenge old habits and extend their knowledge
  • think critically about their practice
  • test new ideas and learning while at work.

Each and every one of our events is designed with adult learning in mind. We provide a complete learning experience that will change your practice over time. Guaranteed.

Astute’s Professional Learning & Development promises a little something for everyone…our sessions are built to bring teams together, to have professional conversations about the things that matter – our practice with children (and each other!) – and to get you all on the same page. Now that’s pretty spesh!

Astute has been extremely professional and supportive towards our service. Mel has gone above and beyond and worked around the clock to support our team.  

Our service loves the EarlyEd Academy. It is user friendly and is developed to inspire and shape all services and their team, no matter what skill level we are all at. 

From the moment we met Mel from Astute, we felt comfortable with her warm and friendly presence. Mel is professional, takes pride in sharing her experiences and knowledge. We are lucky to have had the opportunity to work closely with Mel and her team.

Simply Sunshine Child Care

Astute, and Mel in particular, really helped me to get my head around my position as Educational Leader at my centre.  I had been in the role for a couple of years with no real direction or clear idea of what my job involved.  Mel worked with me and gave me clear guidelines and processes to put into place to effectively fulfil my role.  I am now an important part of our leadership team and am enjoying empowering the other teachers to consistently reflect on and improve their practice.

“Astute,” which derives from the Latin noun astus, meaning “craft, suggests cleverness, mental sharpness, and diplomatic skill”

Every child you teach will teach you something new about yourself and your teaching style.

Teaching is not a skill one collects when you graduate and pick up your qualification; it’s so much more than formal qualifications.

It doesn’t matter what position you hold, what matters is how you hold that position.  That’s true leadership.
