Education Scotland has started a recruitment campaign to appoint Attainment Advisors, who will work in collaboration with all local authorities in Scotland to support raising attainment in the areas of literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing and providing young people with the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
This forms part of the Scottish Government’s strong commitment to raising attainment as highlighted within the Programme for Government and the new Scottish Attainment Challenge announced by the First Minister in February.
The Attainment Challenge, backed by a £100 million fund, aims to raise the attainment of children and young people, particularly those from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.
The new team of Attainment Advisors will be based in a locality and will work collaboratively alongside local authority staff and partners to reach into every learning community in Scotland to build capacity in schools.
Attainment Advisors will help inform national work and promote innovation and spread good practice across Scotland providing young people with the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
A number of different working patterns are being offered for these positions and the closing date for applications is midnight on Monday, June 1
