Unison warns over staff skills and pay

The extended schools agenda is an opportunity to skill-up
existing school staff, Unison said last week.

Christina McAnea, national secretary for education services at
the public sector union, warned a conference that extended services
must not create a group of low-paid staff in public services.

She told the conference, organised by the charity 4Children,
that proposals for a single qualifications framework did “open up
possibilities”, but said it would be unhelpful if the common core
of skills for the workforce became too generic.
