Congratulations Ann Brooks OBE

On behalf of CACHE we would like to congratulate Ann Brooks for being awarded an OBE in the 2019 New Year’s honours list.

Ann Brooks has been recognised for services to the improvement of education for Early Years and Childcare practitioners nationally, and for her instrumental role in the development of CACHE.

From her earliest work as a nursery school teacher to her later work as Chief Examiner at CACHE, Ann has worked to improve standards of training and education for those in the sector, and has acted as a passionate advocate for vocational education.

Ann’s influence has been seen throughout the Early Years and Childcare sector for over 50 years, and will no doubt continue to inspire others in raising awareness and standards for practitioners in years to come.
