Most promising newcomer to education journalism 2013

This year I was shortlisted for a CIPR Education Journalism Award in the most promising newcomer to education journalism category.

This recognised articles I had written for Children & Young People Now magazine on the ratios debate in the early education sector in 2013. In January the government published plans to change legal ratios of childcare providers to children in early years settings. This was met with huge opposition from early education providers, which eventually prompted the government to u-turn on the policy.

The full short-list for the award is available here.
