The campaign – ‘Shape their worlds. Shape your career.’ – aims to encourage more school leavers into the profession to deliver the expansion of funded early learning and childcare to 1,140 hours a year, or 30 hours per week, by 2020.
The First Minister said:
Our expansion of funded nursery education and childcare will be truly transformational and we need a strong workforce to achieve this.
“Working in this profession is hugely rewarding as it makes a real difference to children’s lives, developing their skills and preparing them for school.”
