The current study extends a recent workforce development programme evaluation and examines the relationship between ongoing success in the three-year programme and participants' educational attainment, professional activities and several employment factors. Three hundred and twenty-seven teaching staff and 92 directors from 99 child care centres participated. Survival analyses and logistic regressions were used. Compared to centre directors without early childhood relevant degrees, centre directors with such credentials were more likely to still be participating after three years; and teaching staff with similar credentials were marginally more likely to still be participating. Analyses further highlighted education, benefits and employment-related problems in predicting directors' continued participation and the role of education and experience in predicting centre teaching staff's ongoing participation. Findings are discussed in the broader context of workforce development initiatives. (Contains 3 tables, 2 figures and 1 note.)
