EEC encourages educators and programs to use Core Competencies to validate their education, skills, and experience and to plan the next steps in their professional growth. Educational institutions and professional development organizations are encouraged to use the competencies to organize and develop their offerings.
The Department of Early Education and Care has set a goal of Competency Development to "ensure educators are gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to increase individual competency, enhance program quality, and improve outcomes for children. Competency is achieved through professional development that addresses theory to practice, utilizes reflection, adapts to individual educator and provider needs. It aligns EEC Core Competencies with ESE Curriculum Frameworks, and supports the use of environmental rating scales and formative evidenced-based assessments. Increased competency leads to the attainment of a degree, certificate, or credential for educators and, for providers, accreditation and upward movement on QRIS.
