Scottish Government has launched a new induction pack for people working in early learning and childcare (ELC).
The pack – aimed primarily at new staff – will help understanding how to receive funding for further qualifications, the legal requirements for working in childcare and where to get information and support throughout their career.
The aim of the pack is to help raise the quality of childcare and ensure that staff (throughout their careers and wherever they work) have the right knowledge and skills to deliver quality learning for pre-school children.
Scottish Government is almost doubling entitlement to ELC from August 2020 to 1140 hours a year. Up to 11,000 additional workers – or 9,000 full time equivalents – will be needed to work in the sector from August 2020.
To view or download the pack, please visit the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) website.
