The Improvement Service Early Learning and Childcare Expansion team has been shortlisted for the Project and Programme Management Award at the 2021 Scottish Public Service Awards.
The Scottish Public Service Awards celebrate the daily contribution made to Scotland’s civic society from within the civil service, Scottish Government, Scottish Parliament, local government, health and social care sector, broader public sector and their partners within the Third Sector.
The Project and Programme Management Award recognises good practice in project, programme and portfolio management.
In August 2021, the statutory entitlement of funded early learning and childcare (ELC) provision in Scotland increased. The Early Learning and Childcare Expansion team support local authorities with the delivery of their programmes through the provision of targeted business analysis, workforce planning and communications support.
The Scottish Public Service Awards ceremony takes place on 8 December.
