Stephanie Loughlin

Stephanie is a supervisor in Murrayfield Nursery which is a private day care of children service in Edinburgh.

Stephanie’s SSSC registration category is lead practitioner in a day care of children service. Workers in day care of children’s services are registered with the SSSC and must achieve a relevant qualification, for example an SVQ or HNC. Stephanie explains in the video on the right that she chose to complete an HNC part time and she could do this while she worked at the nursery. The full qualification requirement in this role is a childhood practice award at SCQF level 9, for example the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Professional Development Award (PDA) in Childhood Practice at SCQF level 9. These are completed part time while in work. You can find out more in the qualification pathways.

They’re really funny and surprising. What they know and the things they think about. I learn new things from them every day.
