Early Years recruitment report

In News EYFS on

Education Policy Institute warns of Childcare sector losing staff to the Retail sector: The Education Policy Institute (EPI) has released a worrying report identifying great uncertainty over recruitment and retention, with growing reports of workers switching to the retail sector, in order to secure more favourable working conditions. The report, 'The early years workforce: A comparison with retail workers', highlights a worrying trend of effectively decreasing wages in the childcare and education sector (due to rises in cost of living etc) and the increasing of wages in the retail sector. Coupled with the availability and range of the retail opportunities against the requirement for qualifications in the childcare sector workers the EPI predicts a bleak outlook for our sector.

You can discuss the report on this thread.
