CWDC recruiting for graduate schemes

Published: Wednesday, 11 August 2010   Category: Postgraduate Study

A non-departmental public body is looking to attract high-calibre university leavers for a new graduate placement course, it has been confirmed.

The Children's Workforce Development Council (CWDC) has joined forces with Canterbury Christ Church University in Kent to deliver the 'New Leaders in Early Years' programme.

An initial 30 graduates with a 2:1 degree or better will sign up for a two-year postgraduate course starting in November, with a further 30 candidates set to be recruited in autumn 2011.

The graduates will have tuition fees covered, while also receiving a bursary of £8,000 in year one and a £17,000 working wage in the second year, Nursery World reports.

"This is not just about attracting recent graduates but about people with the right credentials, whatever their age or experience," Thom Crabbe, national manager for early years at the CWDC, told the news provider.

"We want to recruit applicants with the aptitude, skills, abilities and motivation to make first-class leaders."

Meanwhile, Pam Tatlow, chief executive of thinktank million+, recently urged the government to provide assurances that it will financially support the UK's "world-class" universities.
