The National Association for Primary Education speaks for young children and all who live and work with them. On this podcast we discuss the work and lectures of Christian Schiller, interview education specialist and explain how NAPE is working for you. Our aim is to achieve a higher priority for the education of children from birth to 13. High quality learning in the early years of life is vitally important to the creation of an educated society. Young children are not simply preparing for the future, they are living a never to be repeated time of life and the best way to learn is to live.

    Mark Taylor (Vice Chair of National Association for Primary Education) talks to Penny Borkett. Penny wrote an article for the Primary First Journal issue 29 entitled:

    Who are you? - The importance of building identity in the early years and the place of culture within this.

    Penny has spent many years working as a teaching assistant in a variety of schools. She decided to study as a mature student for a degree which focused on children in the early years. After completing that degree she decided to continue studying and completed her MA. At the time she was working as a Portage worker in a Children's Centre in a multi-cultural area so became very interested in inclusion and working with communities from other parts of the world.

    She then worked for a while as a Children's Centre Co-ordinator before moving to Sheffield Hallam University to teach.
