The following report, prepared by the Muttart Foundation, explores the educational experiences and anticipated employment plans, after graduation, of students completing early learning and child care credentials in Alberta. It draws on the findings from focus groups with students at six public post-secondary institutions and adds to the current limited body of research that explores student experiences and motivations in completing early learning and care credentials. The main research findings provide insights into how students view their education and the potential work opportunities available to them in the field. It concludes with some important learnings for governments and early learning and care partners to consider as they work together to support the educational preparation of students and their transition into the workforce.
