Conor Bathgate is the Deputy Manager at Lisson Green Community Nursery, in Westminster, London. In this interview he talks about being a young man in Early Years (he is only 21 and already a Deputy Manager); his research on cohort tracking and how to identify the areas of good practice; and how overcoming difficulties at work in a professional way has increased his self-confidence.
Conor has an extremely positive attitude to both his own job role and the Early Years sector in general. This is summed up in his own words “My job makes me so happy”. This is a real feel-good interview – enjoy!
