Biographies and People's Stories

We bring you here the stories of some amazing men as they enter teacher training.  There stories are inspiring.  We need to share their stories and say to other men "hey you could be considering working in ECE too!".  

We also bring you stories here of some of our leaders – some are known for their work within the early childhood or education communities, some are leading distinguished careers, while others are contributing  in their own quiet, unrecognised but constructive way – the unsung heroes. They talk - each in their own separate, distinct and compelling manner - of their early struggles, perseverance, joys, passionate commitment and dogged goals for the education and welfare of our young children. Their extraordinary lives, we hope, will give inspiration and encouragement to others taking a similar path or considering what career path to take.
