In this chapter I examine the practicalities of developing a gender-conscious and gender-flexible workforce in ECEC. I present the recruitment drives that have been attempted in other countries especially large-scale, well-funded national campaigns in Norway and Germany. I emphasise the need for training in gender sensitivity in initial teacher training and continuing professional development. I also present various examples of, and arguments for, single-sex, male-only support groups. I emphasise the value of strong supportive leadership and collegiality as essential ingredients for retaining male practitioners. © 2018, The Author(s).
