I have volunteered and worked in the childcare and education sector since the age of 16. During this time, I have received my degree in primary education and gained my early years professional status. Before starting my position with Realise in June 2022, I worked as a preschool manager for four years. I do miss supporting my children and families, but it is nice to get to see our up-and-coming early years professionals do an amazing job of supporting children in their own settings.

I moved over to teaching and assessing early years apprenticeships back in 2013 and my passion about people and supporting their development and learning (whether young or old) is still at the heart of what I do every day.  As an ex-manager, I know how hard it is to find good reliable staff that understand what it is to be an effective practitioner or educator, so this has also become my mission.  Listening to employers’ needs is where I start the process.
