Come and visit our stand to see our new resources for early years workers and those thinking about moving to a career in early years. Our free digital resources will support the workforce at a time of major expansion with recruitment of thousands of new workers to meet the Scottish Government’s commitment to increase free provision to 1,140 hours by 2020. The interactive resources will support practitioners’ knowledge and understanding of observing children, child development and mentoring. Our new childcare careers website shows how you can build a career in day care of children, which includes early learning and childcare (ELC), out of school care, childminding and other services where children are cared for during the day. The new easy to use website explains: > how the recent increase of funded ELC entitlement has created 11,000 more job opportunities between now and 2020 > the diversity of career paths, shown through the career stories of current childcare professionals > the different ways to gain experience and qualifications > how to access learning resources and training providers. Working with children is fun, interesting and an opportunity to make a significant difference. If you’re interested in this career we hope the website will help you take your first steps.
