Viv has a background in business admin/HR roles, and worked in these roles around the UK before moving to Wales.
Whilst taking a career break to look after children at home she volunteered at the local preschool playgroup. This experience led to a new career in preschool education and childcare.
Viv started employment at a sessional playgroup and gained Level 3 and Level 5 (Advanced Practitioner) CCLD qualifications. Viv then took a role with a childcare business support organisation covering Powys. This involved all aspects of running a childcare setting, and supporting them to deliver a high quality service and be sustainable.
In January 2020 Viv joined Progression Training to use her knowledge and experience gained during her 14 years in the sector to support learners to upskill and gain qualifications.
