Moray’s nursery hours published ahead of registration

Press Releases   •   Jan 03, 2019 11:00 GMT

Moray Council has published details of the hours on offer at all funded providers from August 2019 ahead of registration week commencing 14th January 2019.

More providers are offering the increased 1,140 hours a year of Scottish Government funded early learning and childcare from August 2019 with some trialling year round provision as well as longer days for those eligible for the increase.

Around 1,000 children in Moray will become eligible for the increased hours from August 2019, parents can check their eligibility online by entering their postcode, with Moray on track to offer all three and four year olds and eligible two year olds their full entitlement by the 2020 deadline set by the Scottish Government.

Parents registering their children for nursery during registration week, which begins on 14th January, can check the session times being offered in all funded providers in Moray online. Registration forms can also be downloaded and taken to the preferred nursery during that week.

Parents registering for Lady Cathcart, Millbank, Lhanbryde and Seafield nurseries can do so online for the first time in 2019.

With more options than ever before for parents seeking early learning and childcare the new information booklet, Your Choices, may come in handy.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.

Men in ELC course starting January 2019

Press Releases   •   Dec 21, 2018 09:05 GMT

Moray Council has teamed up with Moray College UHI to develop a new, fully-funded, Men in ELC course, which starts in January, as part of the Scottish Government’s expansion of early learning and childcare (ELC).

Moray College UHI has tailored the course specifically to suit the increase in ELC workforce required in Moray by 2020, and with a potential of up to 300 staff being recruited there’s never been a better time to consider a career in ELC.

Passing the 20 week course will give attendees a Skills for Work Level 5 qualification and an invitation to apply for the SVQ or HNC to continue their route into a career in early education.

Aimed at career changers and parents, the course runs until June with a blended approach of face-to-face learning once a week on Wednesdays between 6pm-9pm, online teaching and self-study. A placement is part of the course with Moray Council’s Scottish Government funded ELC expansion project covering the cost of Disclosure Scotland checks for successful course applicants.

With a view to diversifying the workforce in ELC, successful Men in Childcare courses have been running in Perth and Edinburgh for five years. Of those who have taken part in courses in the last three years nearly 80% of respondents to a final destination survey are now working in an ELC setting or continuing their training in the sector.

Having a positive male role model in a learning environment is one way the Scottish Government is looking to tackle the attainment gap, particularly amongst boys. A progressive career in ELC is a fantastic opportunity to play a part in shaping young lives.

For more details on the course or to apply please contact Moray College or visit their website.
