The Council has revealed details of a new staff structure in its “learning” team. The restructure is aimed at saving £284,000 a year in staffing costs and has been influenced by the conclusion of some Europe funded projects.
Some voluntary redundancies have already taken place. Three existing staff face compulsory redundancy
The background report says,
“Many of these savings are coming from reduction in management posts, but there will also be some savings in direct service delivery, including reductions in some teaching staff, reductions in employability programmes and provision to support mental health issues.
The decision was taken at a “behind closed doors” meeting held on 21st December.
