School costs can put pressure on low-income families and put children at risk of missing out on opportunities and feeling different, excluded and unhappy. The Cost of the School Day project involves school communities in identifying financial barriers and taking action to remove them.
Working in partnership with Moray Council Education and Social Care department, CPAG in Scotland is recruiting two Practitioners to carry out the delivery of the Cost of the School Day project in Moray. These are 2 year fixed term posts.
Practitioners will work with schools to take action on cost barriers and provide support which ensures that Cost of the School Day is sustainable in the longer term. The work of this post will build on the Cost of the School Day Moray conference in February 2019 and be informed by Moray's Local Child Poverty Action Plan. Part of this post will also involve work with neighbouring Northern Alliance local authorities.
This post is part of the UK Cost of the School Day project, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. For more information about the project and work to date please visit cpag.org.uk/scotland/cost-school-day
