Children need to spend their most critical years with dedicated, educated, trained, and well-compensated individuals in order to thrive. The New York Early Childhood Professional Development Institute leads the work to establish and implement an early childhood workforce system to ensure funding, standards and competencies, career development resources, qualifications and credentials, professional development (training and strengths-based coaching), and program quality assurance and improvement for individuals who work with young children throughout New York. Housed at the City University of New York, the Institute is a fast-paced, dynamic public/private partnership that is committed to the early childhood workforce across New York State.
The Institute operates the Career Development Center, which provides comprehensive career development services to all current and aspiring early childhood professionals. The Center’s services include academic planning and advisement, career and vocational assessment and planning, teacher certification supports, professional development opportunities through the Early Childhood Leadership Initiative, and higher education opportunities in partnership with the CUNY School of Professional Studies. The Institute has recently received funding to expand the Career Development Center model to three additional locations around the state – in the Capital District, Oneida County, and Buffalo/Erie County.
The Institute will hire three part time Career Development Coordinators. The Coordinator is responsible for supporting the implementation of the Early Childhood Career Development Center model in their location. The Coordinator will report to the Director of Career Development and Higher Education, mostly remotely, to coordinate a system of career development supports for individuals in the pursuit of a career in early childhood. Equipped with a wide range of experience in the field, the ideal candidate will have intimate knowledge of the professional development needs of the early childhood workforce generally, and in their region specifically, as well as knowledge of the academic and professional development resources available in their community and region.
