Hello everyone :) So, my name's Ashley Mullen and I live in Sprinburn, Glasgow. I'm only 18, but please, don't be put off!
I studied Childcare for 2 1/2 years, when I turned 16 (I'm almost 19)! I've done work placements in nurseries starting at 8 weeks, to 5 years. I've also worked in one school. For my school work experience, I was at a before and after school club, which is really what got me into the idea of working with Children.
I have a level 3 certificate in Childcare, and also an NC Award.
I'll be honest from the start and say I don't have my HNC in Childcare, because I decided to leave the course in January, as I had family issues and had fallen so far behind on my work that I could see no way of catching up. I realize now that I should have just gotten more help, it was a foolish mistake, and when I can afford to, I'd like to go back to college to finish it.
I have had CRB checks and Disclosure Scotland checks for three years running and they have come up clear. I would only be too happy to get another done if you require.
