Career Pathways

As our primary focus is the growth and development of our children, it should come as no surprise that we are equally focused on assisting our employees to do the same with their careers. We love nothing more than seeing our educators and team members following a path of career progression that takes them precisely to where they want to be.

By supporting you to develop new skills, not only do we pave the way for career progression, but we also help you to grow and feel more confident in your role. Your professional and personal development is our priority enabling you to do a job you love and reap the rewards.

Learning and development

We have a continuous commitment to learning and development to encourage you to be your best. We do this by offering mentoring, leadership development programs and by supporting activities to increase team cohesion. Creating an engaging work environment where people love to come to work every day is at the heart of our workplace culture.

At Petit ELJ, you can progress into a variety of roles within our centres. With in-house coaching and mentoring as well as professional development opportunities, we will encourage you to grow your career with us.
