CELA membership: When you’re with us, you’re always supported
Being a CELA member means that you’ll never have to face a challenge alone. Our highly experienced sector specialists are only a phone call or email away.
When you contact CELA you’ll be speaking with people who have operational experience in service delivery and management, many of whom are still working in the sector. Whether you’re looking for a better understanding of how regulatory changes affect you and your service, or resources and support to improve practice and service delivery, our expert staff will help you to find your way.
Telling it louder, sharing it wider and making it clearer
We’re your voice for advocacy and a vital channel for sector information – delivering breaking news via our weekly Amplify! publication and providing a platform for discussion and commentary on sector topics. We turn complex issues into relatable and understandable information.
Your first point of call for professional development, consultancy and networking
We’re an essential source of training and development for all levels of early education and care, providing a range of regularly updated courses which can be tailored to the needs of your team, and webinars that can be viewed at a time that suits you.
Our expert consultants have helped many services to navigate through all aspects of the set up and implementation of a successful service, while our inspiring networking events have brought together thousands of likeminded professionals to share their ideas and build their knowledge in a warm, friendly environment.
