CSQ raises concerns about shortage of ECEs, changes to QC training initiatives

The Centrale des syndicats du Québec (CSQ) has raised concerns about a shortage of early childhood education workers, as well as the Government of Quebec’s changes to training initiatives. According to the CSQ, QC is increasing the number of short training initiatives rather than promoting college-level training or increasing the number of pathways to this training. “[The DEC in Early Childhood Education] is the training that we consider the most complete to ensure quality service,” said CSQ VP Line Camerlain. “When an educator arrives and is not perfectly qualified, it leads to an overload for those who are already in the field.” Camerlain is calling for more bridging programs and for the creation of flexible programs that would allow students to alternate studying with working in centres.
