Welcome to your Plan, Prep & Setup Mini Course Homepage...

In this Empowered Ed Learning Portal you'll find all the 5 STEP mini course tutorials, action guides and resources you need to compile your own Educator Organiser folder and get on top of your paperwork & documentation.

You have access to this mini course and all of the video tutorials for as long as you are a subscriber to the Member Hub Professional Development Portal  so you can go at your own pace and revisit some of the training whenever you need to.

**PLEASE NOTE** - This was originally delivered as a live challenge event and as such there are references to daily emails and live zoom calls - please ignore these references, the videos & any references to 'live only' content will be updated in time to reflect this for Hub members but I wanted to give you access to this additional content as soon as possible so you can feel organised throughout 2022!

How Does This Work? 

Follow the mini course starting at Step 1 & going through to Step 5 - you'll find a new set of action guides, tutorial videos, extender spark resource sheets and any of the resources/printables needed to complete that day's action step that will guide you towards building and personalising your folder.

To the left side of this mini course homepage you'll see all of the Learning Pathways & Sessions available to you. You can choose the pace you wish to work through the course content - you do not have to do it in 5 consecutive days if time is an issue for you.

I do however, suggest you manage your time so you can complete the action steps for at least 1 day of course content each week to keep your momentum and motivation going!

Need A Question Answered? 

You can leave comments and questions underneath the videos or resources as you go, or contact us at

You'll also want to join our private Plan, Prep & Setup group HERE to ask questions, share progress, connect with other challenge and mini course alumni!

As this mini course is no longer a live event and daily emails will not be sent out to Hub members as they were for live participants - my suggestion is to watch the mini tutorial video first each time you begin a learning step. Then you can come back as you have the time throughout the day or week to complete your action steps.

The pace is totally up to you (that's why I recorded the videos!) - take 10 mins here and there or block out some time and get it done all at once. It's YOUR choice - there's no need for overwhelm or 'I'm behind' during this challenge course!!

Hi, I’m Jodie - an early childhood educator, mentor and blogger. I have worked in many different roles across the human services, family services and early childhood professions over the past 35 years so it's likely I have already walked in similar shoes to your own. I know what is helpful (and definitely NOT helpful or useful) to educators because I am one too. I  enjoy supporting and mentoring thousands of educators every year through my popular website The Empowered Educator and practical blog posts, activity ideas, factsheets, free e-guides, online training, membership hub, e-courses, Facebook community, webinars and e-books.
