The many and varied career opportunities available in Early Learning and Childcare were in the spotlight at Early Years Scotland's first ever Careers Morning held in Glasgow yesterday.
Local colleges and training organisations from across Scotland were on hand to offer information and advice to attendees interested in working in Early Learning and Childcare.
A panel of top speakers from early years organisations, local and Scottish Government, and associated agencies gave an overview of the sector as an employer.
Robert Robertson, an Early Years Practitioner from Springvale Nursery Centre in Ayrshire, told his inspirational story of how, after 20 years working in sales and manufacturing, he embarked on a career in early years and completed a BA in Childhood Practice.
On the panel were:
Jean Carwood-Edwards, Chief Executive, Early Years Scotland
Heather Douglas, Early Years Lead, Glasgow City Council
Robert Robertson, Early Years Practitioner at Springvale Nursery Centre
Alison Precup, Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC)
Scott Sutherland, Early Learning and Childcare Team, Scottish Government
Helen Alison, Skills Development Scotland (SDS)
The event was held in partnership with SDS and the Daily Record.
