Carol Briault – Lead Liaison and Communications Officer

Originally from a teaching background, I have worked in Early Years and Childcare for over 20 years. I joined KCC in April 2015 bringing a range of knowledge and experience with me from working and supervising at a local village preschool, to supporting childminders via a quality assurance scheme/childminding network and managing a local authority childminding contract held by PACEY for the past four years.

As well as holding a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, I obtained Early Years Professional Status in its early days.  These have enabled me to write and deliver a range of childminder training, to support individual childminders in developing their settings and work with the local authority to plan childminder development within Kent.

My current role as Provider Liaison Officer is wide-ranging and varied, involving supporting the development of collaborations as well as wider communication and liaison with providers and parents.

At the moment I am enjoying learning Tai Chi and am working on a family tree.
