Meet Claire, programme lead for our university level Early Years courses.
I have always been passionate about early years education, and have a wealth of experience in a variety of educative roles and settings as a primary school teacher, Assistant Headteacher, EYFS Coordinator, Deputy Nursery Manager and student mentor. This is my first year working at Wiltshire College & University Centre. I particularly enjoy sharing my knowledge and understanding with students, supporting them on their journey to become outstanding practitioners who are able to inspire young children and enable them to flourish in their development.
I studied French at university and my love of the language continues. On rainy Sunday afternoons when I am on a long walk with my dog, I often picture holidays sitting on a café terrace watching the world go by or wandering around a beautiful chateau.
