Serena has over 25 years of experience of working in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sector, as a Nursery Nurse, Primary School teacher and for last nine years as an Education Adviser. She is extremely interested in education research which motivated her to obtain an MA in Education.
Since working as an adviser she has worked extensively in a range of early years settings across Birmingham and has written and delivered a range of CPD courses in the EYFS. She is responsible for leading and managing the EYFS Statutory Profile moderation process on behalf of Birmingham Local Authority and so has a keen interest in the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in the EYFS.
Serena strongly believes that all children in the EYFS in Birmingham are provided with high quality early years provision so that they become confident and independent life-long learners.
