Equity and Excellence Leads

The Scottish Government recently created a new role in Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) to help ensure we close the attainment gap between our least and most disadvantaged children. The post has been nationally named as the “Equity and Excellence Lead”. Whilst there is local variation in the role, this name reflects their universal focus on supporting equity and excellence in their area. Previously the post was referred to as “additional graduate” and some authorities have chosen their own individual local names.
