Topics may include a study of some key management processes: staff relations, job satisfaction and motivation and the reasons for staff turnover; organising time and space in the centre; a consideration of the role of the management committee and the relationship of the coordinator to the committee; the composition of committees and the implications of having parents as employers; promoting the centre in a turbulent environment and an examination of some key strategies in marketing; and an analysis of case studies derived from the experience of personnel in the field which reflect problems and tensions which impact on the coordinator.
