Report by the Acting Corporate Director (Education and Social Care)

 

5

Under reference to paragraph 20 of the Minute of the meeting of Moray Council dated 27 September 2018, a report was submitted by the Acting Corporate Director (Education and Social Care) inviting the Council to approve the establishment of the post of Early Years Service Manager at salary grade 13, as outlined in the Delivery Plan for the expansion of Early Learning and Childcare provision across Moray.

 

During discussion concern was raised in regard to the continued funding of the Early Years Expansion Programme and clarification was sought in regard to the provision of funding for the post and whether this would provided by the Scottish Government and for how long.  In response the Acting Corporate Director (Education and Social Care) advised that Scottish Government Funding was in place until August 2020 but that the Scottish Government have not advised how this will be funded post 2020 and therefore the Service was working to August 2020 and other service managers are contracted to August 2020.

 

Following further discussion the Council agreed to approve the establishment of the post of Early Years Service Manager as detailed in the report and to note that the Scottish Government funding for this was in place until August 2020.
