Early Learning and Childcare

The Scottish Government recently announced its plans to expand free early learning and childcare provision by 2020. The expansion will nearly double entitlement to funded early learning and childcare from 600 to 1140 hours per year for all three and four year-olds, and eligible two year-olds.

The increase in hours has resulted in the need to recruit up to 11,000 early learning and childcare professionals. In the Forth Valley area alone, they are looking to recruit up to 1000 new workers. This will mean a lot of new job opportunities for school leavers, those looking to upskill or anyone who is thinking about a career change.
