Congratulations to #Openingdoors graduate Maddie Cowie!



maddie-cowie-graduation-9-12-16Congratulations to another #Openingdoors graduate! Maddie Cowie has successfully completed all three phases of #Openingdoors and graduated this week. Maddie came to #Openingdoors in September and with our support mapped out her personal pathway into working within the childcare sector.

Maddie now studies at North Highland College and has been successful in gaining employment with CALA’s Staffbank. Maddie’s commitment, enthusiasm and ‘can do’ attitude has ensured that she is mapping out a very bright future for herself within the rapidly expanding childcare sector.

Here she is, receiving her certificate and gift voucher, with her placement supervisor Annarie Hannigan at Sutherland Stepping Stones.

Maddie Says…

“#OD was great for me as it enabled me to get a foot in the door for a path into childcare. #OD taught me lots of great information and was very useful and fun to complete. Being able to complete this at your own pace was great for me as I don’t always have a lot of free time. #OD has helped me so much as my long term goal from ever since I can remember is to work in childcare, which isn’t always an easy sector to get into. Having this really reassures me that things are changing and there is a better chance for young people to get into a career in childcare and early years.”

– Maddie Cowie, age 17
