The Case for Director Credentialing. Taking the Lead. [Videotape].
Wheelock Coll., Boston, MA. Center for Career Development in Early Care and Education.
"Taking the Lead" is an initiative of The Center for Career Development in Early Care and Education at Wheelock College, working in partnership with other national organizations and government policymakers. The initiative is intended to build the capacity of the early care and education field to improve program quality by: (1) improving access to leadership development opportunities, building infrastructure, and expanding the skills of new and existing leaders to generate increased public support and public and private investment; and (2) advancing the development of a director credential for administrators/directors of early care and education programs. This seven-minute videotape is designed for use with policymakers, funders, and practitioners to highlight the benefits of a director credential. The video offers a concise overview of director credentialing efforts underway nationwide and demonstrates a clear connection between a strong director credentialing initiative and improvements in the quality of early childhood care and education.
