Job Description

Angus Council currently operates the following models in their early learning and childcare settings:

ELC Model 1 – children’s funded entitlement is 190 set days at 6 hours per day

ELC Model 2 – children’s funded entitlement is 152 set days at 7½ hours per day

ELC Model 3 – children’s funded entitlement is 228 set days at 5 hours per day

You will also have weekly planning and preparation time, and agreed collegiate time, in addition to the “child contact” hours outlined above.

ELC settings in models 1 and 2 will open over term-time.

ELC Model 3 is different as these settings are open for more hours every day and are only closed to children for two weeks over the Christmas/New Year period, three weeks in July/August and a further three public holidays and five in-service days. Therefore, they are offering ELC over 46.6 weeks of the year. This also means staff can use their annual leave and non-working time in a different way to staff working term-time. Whilst some of the leave will be decided in advance (i.e. when the setting is closed), staff working in these settings will also be able to apply for additional time off while the setting is open.

Based at Early Learning and Childcare Centre, Forfar (ELC Model 3), working 36.25 hours per week, days of work to be confirmed.

You will work up to 195 days per year on various working patterns (Monday to Friday), term‑time working or equivalent.


You must have the ability to become a member of the PVG Scheme.

Membership of the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) or commitment to gain registration with the SSSC in accordance with their requirements is essential.
