It was great to visit a wonderful local business success story – Daisychain Day Nursery in Whitley. Not only is the business growing from strength to strength but the owner Rachel Spanswick has worked her way up in the sector from the age of 16. This local entrepreneur has created 20 jobs for local people and her sense of aspiration and passion for her vocation is inspiring.
We need to support vocational sectors, encourage our young and not push everyone into the one size fits all box of University. We need to address our career education and encourage more people like Rachel to go into schools and explain the real possibilities in different roles.
