Talent Release Form

Early Childhood Defence Program (ECDP) project  

The ECDP project aims to provide two online research-based programs for early childhood educators and parents to better assist young children from defence families. The programs and all teaching resources will be provided free of charge online after they have been piloted and evaluated. The programs and resources will be accessed online, meaning other parents (and those who support them) who experience a parent working away (e.g. emergency workers, mining workers, transport workers) may also use the resources.

Context and purpose

This form helps you understand:

  1. why we want your talent (to assist parents and educators support young children),
  2. why we are using your talent (to enrich our resources and programs for families, educators and young children), and
  3. you will not be financially compensated for your talent (because we do not have enough funding for that)

Capturing your talent in different ways

The use of your talent may include: voice or video recording interview, voice or video recording reading, photograph or video footage, illustrative work processes and events, talent competitions, compositions, writing, editing or advising, or other forms not mentioned here.

Promotion

As part of the project, the ECDP team need to let families and other stakeholders (e.g. funding bodies, community groups, other academics) know about the work we do. Therefore, your work (or excerpts of your work) may be used for academic articles and presentations, media engagement, marketing, web and media activities including, but not limited to, advertisements, brochures, event promotions, posters, display screens, social media releases etc.
