I'm sure I found one here a while ago and tweaked it a bit to suit my setting as we had to submit our own job descriptions for the committee before they made a decision on a pay rise. Will see if I can dig it out later. Computer not co-operating this morning - kids have been messing with settings AGAIN.

Thanks Kaitun, this is what we call our Deputy Leader and it's good to see that we are working in the same way, as in pretty much the same as the practioner role but with responsibilities of the manager in absence.


Could i just point out that you may well have a mix up on one of the points, unless I'm reading it wrong



Children's Practioner role point 26 To support the nursery manager...........

however you don't have this in the Senior practioner role


should this be the other way round, and be in the Senior practioner spec?


Other than that I love them and will be tweeking ours a little if you don't mind me pinching?

I am still trying to work out the Leaders one for our setting as I have used the PLA ones in the past but they don't seem quite as indepth as yours. Are you a pre-school/playgroup setting?
