Do Something Big

The DfE are incredibly excited to introduce their new national recruitment campaign for early years and the childcare sector;

Do something BIG. Work with small children. 

This campaign will shine a light on the great careers available in the sector and recognise the lifelong impact childcare professionals have on children during their most formative years. It will run across TV, cinema, social media, online, radio and billboard advertising. 

The campaign aims to promote the early years sector and encourage people to find out how unique and rewarding early years careers can be.  The campaign is an opportunity to have a shared and unifying voice across early years and childcare, showing the country that working with small children is a big deal.  The campaign website has all the information to help people take steps to start their own early years and childcare career, with job application advice, information on training and qualifications and real life stories of those already in early years and childcare.

The ‘Do something Big’ communications toolkit contains information and resources to help communicate the campaign messages and amplify recruitment activity for your setting.
