Ask The Expert – Episode Nine: Emma Pinnock

Catch up on our interview with Emma Pinnock, Founder of Essential Education Group

Earlier this year, we launched a new blog series called ‘Ask the Expert’ – which provides a platform for all Early Years (EY) professionals to share their experiences and advice with the industry, on their chosen specialist subject. We’re now building upon the success of the written series by including video interviews with our chosen guests, so you can choose to either watch, read, or listen in your own time.

At the recent Childcare and Education Expo event, we interviewed Emma Pinnock, Founder of Essential Education Group. Emma explains the steps educators can take to create environments, practices and interventions to ensure that no child’s needs are missed. She covers why early intervention is important for SEND and her wishes for the Sector this academic year.
