Christine Robinson: Equality and Inclusion Adviser

I have worked in a range of Early Years services for most of my working life, including the running of a successful nursery for 10 years. I was very involved with the PLA as the branch chair and tutor and am committed to the principles of parental involvement. I worked for the Adult Education service and tutored a wide range of childcare courses, was a qualified NVQ Assessor and worked as an Early Years inspector for both Social Services and Ofsted for 9 years.

For the last 11 years, I have worked as a quality improvement mentor, a SIP and Equality and Inclusion Adviser.  Apart from a MA in Early Years, I also hold a Certificate in Education, Certificate in Management and a 2 year post-graduate diploma in inspection and registration.

I enjoy cooking, reading and walking by the coast; my especial delight at the moment is watching my young grandsons growing up.
