Voice Comment on Social Mobility Commission Report

Voice welcomes the Social Mobility Commission Report and recommendations. There is no doubt that the stability of the Early Years Workforce in England is in jeopardy and that C-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the problem further. 

General Secretary Deborah Lawson said:

"This latest in a long line of reports highlighting the workforce issues of the sector provides yet more evidence that an overhaul of the Early Years career pathways, to address the recruitment and retention issues is urgently required.  Without it we are risking not only employment and career opportunities but also the quality of provision which is essential to reducing the attainment gap”.
