Martin's Story

These videos introduce Martin and Avril who both work in different roles in a Glasgow nursery.

Martin is a Child Development Officer and is one of a very small percentage of men working in Scotland’s nurseries. Here he explains why he decided to change career and move into the early years sector – and also why it is so important to encourage more men into childcare.

Avril is a Child Development Officer Team Leader, working in childcare for 15 years. She has held various roles within the childcare sector and explains how she progressed into these roles, and the options for further progression available.

Both Martin and Avril explain exactly why they love their roles, the variety and challenge each day brings and why they would encourage anyone who is considering a role into childcare to make the move!
