WITH the expansion of Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) services in Scotland, there is now a range of positions available across the country.

There’s an option to train on the job or to study at a college or training provider near you.

According to the ELC, there are opportunities for career progression plus you’ll get variety, creativity, and feel rewarded in this career, helping children to learn essential skills for life.

The recruitment campaign stems from the Scottish Government’s commitment to expand free childcare by 2020.

This expansion will almost double entitlement to funded hours from 600 to 1,140 per year for all three- and four-year-olds, and eligible two-year-olds.

This has resulted in a need to recruit up to 11,000 additional ELC professionals to deliver that expanded service by August 2020.

A dedicated campaign website www.childcarecareersscotland.scot has been created which includes a directory with a hub of 32 bespoke local authority pages where people who are interested in ELC can find jobs and training in their own area with just one click.
