Meagan Dore was already interested in a career in early years education as she was inspired by her mum who had been a childcare practitioner for 15 years. It was a visit to a Reading College Open Event, though, that persuaded her to study with Activate Learning.
Meagan said: “I chose an Early Years pathway because my mum had been a childcare practitioner for 15 years.
“When I met my teacher Nicky at the Open Event, I knew it felt right to come here. It was such a welcoming environment.
“I’ve completed placements at local day nurseries, and this has given me first-hand experience of what it is like to work in these settings. My confidence and ability to manage workloads have also improved.”
Meagan has now completed her pathway and is ready to start her career, and her aim is to work with young children with autism.
