Council announces redundancy plans

A group of professionals in the education sector in the south of England are facing redundancy, it has emerged.

Wiltshire Council has today (January 25th) unveiled plans to cut a minimum of 18 positions from its education department in the near future as it expects to lose around £3 million in funding for this area when its next budget is confirmed in March, This is Wiltshire reports.

Last week, Stephanie Denovan, senior director for schools and learning at the local authority, revealed that some 129 people at risk of losing their job will be given the option to take voluntary redundancy.

Ms Denovan said that while these losses are regrettable, the council "will do everything we can to support them with their future opportunities as they have all done very well representing Wiltshire".

It is thought that teachers are not at risk of being made redundant, although individuals who work in primary, secondary and adult education could lose their jobs.
