Janine Scott - Early Years Improvement Adviser

I have more than 20 years’ experience in Early Years in a variety of roles including nursery management, Local Authority Childcare Business Officer, Ofsted Inspector and Local Authority Improvement and Standards Adviser; so have a broad range of knowledge.  My passion is supporting robust leadership and management systems as well as organisation.

I am experienced in supporting managers to review and reflect on their practice and have helped settings move from ‘Requires Improvement’ to ‘Good’ and from ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’ through strategic visits.  I am highly motivated, passionate and committed to Early Years and feel this is demonstrated through my training which I differentiate to meet the needs of individuals to support them with their professional development. I have up to date knowledge of the inspection framework and lead in writing and presenting briefing sessions to keep the sector up to date as well as training such as ‘Are you Ready for Your Inspection?’

I hold a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies, accredited SENCo, British Sign Language level 1 as well as regularly attending other courses to continue to keep myself up to date.
