About the book: Professionalism in the Early Years reflects the new government agenda demanding higher levels of professionalism in the Early Years sector, as set out in the Children's Workforce Strategy. The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and Children’s Workforce Development Council (CWDC) aim to transform and professionalise the early years workforce through the creation of new roles, such as the Early Years Professional (EYP), for those leading and working in Children's Centres and in the private and voluntary sector. This text is written by national and international authorities in the field, all of whom are involved in teaching, training and research or at policy level. The editors have been closely involved with development of the government agenda on professionalising the Early Years workforce.

Professionalism in the Early Years covers a wide range of issues including:
· routes to professionalism;
· policy developments;
· multi-professional collaboration and multi-agency working;
· international perspectives;
· rethinking professionalism;
· key themes and issues within the Early Years workforce.
