Worcester graduate is face of national campaign

A WORCESTER graduate is part of a national campaign to boost the number of childminders.

Lynne Adamson completed her foundation degree in Integrated Working with Families and Children – which she did part time alongside her full-time job as a childminder.

She is now returning for another two years part time for the full degree.

Lynee has become the face of a national campaign which is aimed at encouraging more people to join her profession.

She said: “I’d been a childminder since I had my daughter, and she’s 13 now.

“I was really quite passionate about early years education, so I thought, if I get the qualification as well as my two outstanding Ofsted inspections then I’ll be doing pretty well.”

Lynn heard of the foundation course at a networking event where Michelle Malomo – a senior lecturer – at the University of Worcester giving a talk.

Lynn has featured in a government campaign: “It feels surreal. I just thought, if I could give somebody else the confidence to just go for it, especially as a mature student, I just wanted to say, ‘don’t let things get in your way’.

“Whatever sector it is you want to be part of, when it comes to study, just do it.”
