Views on the role of local authorities

Heads/Managers also reported feeling supported by local authorities: Table 9 shows 33 out of 37 were satisfied or very satisfied with the support provided by their local authorities.

Table 9 (Head/Manager interviews)
How satisfied are you with the support provided to you by your local authority?
N %
Very satisfied 20 54%
Satisfied 13 35%
Dissatisfied 4 11%
Very dissatisfied 0 0%

However, when asked, 'what could be improved in terms of local authority support?', some Heads noted communication around the EE Lead roles could have been better. Examples included:

'It would have been helpful to have the role defined consistently across the Authority'.

'More information about the role before the appointments were made. Information has been very slow, particularly for the EE lead; to the point she was unsure whether to continue in the post'.

'Clarity around what lead officer should be doing'.
