We are currently seeking to appoint a Lead Practitioner for Attainment for our Child & Family Centre in Govan.

Glasgow City Mission’s Child & Family Centre provides a number of valuable services to the local community from nursery provision and parenting support classes, to counselling and confidence building activities. Working with over 100 children and their families, our aim is to break the poverty cycle and give children in Govan the best start in life. By investing in safe guarding and supporting families, we help children and parent alike grow to become confident and ‘life equipped’.

As part of the childcare team of the nursery, this role will provide additional support for children who need it most in order to close the attainment gap, through helping boost cognitive development and reduce any disparity that opens up before children start primary school.

Applicants should hold or be working towards the BA Childhood Practice, PDA, Certificate / Diploma in Early Childhood Studies or other relevant advanced qualification. Candidates should be in sympathy with the ethos of Glasgow City Mission.
