Job Descriptions


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Can anyone help me?


As part of my Foundation Degree in Early Years we have to compare job descriptions for people assoicated/working in Early years settings.


The setting in which I work has no job descriptions for:


Foundation Stage Co-ordinator

Key Stage One Co-ordinator

Foundation Teacher.


I would be so grateful.
