Leadership is identified as an essential component of high-quality practice, attention needs to be given to effective leadership to promote an equitable, sustainable workforce that works together to provide an exciting, relevant and meaningful curriculum supporting young children and their families.

This talk will reflect on leadership practices and explore leadership possibilities, it will reflect on current research that Jill has conducted comparing practices in Malaysia and the UK.
