The government’s ambition is that by 2026, all parents and carers of primary school-aged children who need it, will be able to access term time childcare in their local area from 8am-6pm, so that parents can access employment and improve labour market participation. To support this ambition, the government announced that it will provide up to £289 million of start-up funding over two academic years to support local authorities and providers in England to introduce or expand childcare provision on either side of the school day, which parents of primary school-aged children will be able to pay to access. 

This role will involve working in a collaborative manner with teams across the local authority, schools, childcare providers (including private providers, childminders, community and voluntary organisations and early years settings) to provide support, advice and guidance to develop and maintain quality wraparound childcare provision that is accessible to children and families, including those with SEND.  

The role of the Quality Officer (Out of School Hours) falls within Knowsley’s Early Years Service.

You will have a relevant Childcare qualification at Graduate Level, (with or working towards EYT status desirable) or equivalent experience.

The interviews will take place on 26th June 2024.
