Liz Bayram’s appointment as the National Childminding Association’s new Chief Executive was announced in early November. She takes over the role from Gill Haynes, NCMA’s current Chief Executive, in mid-December. Here Liz explains why she applied and what NCMA’s vision for home-based childcare is.
Why did you decide to apply for the post of chief executive?
“I am currently NCMA’s Director of Policy and Public Affairs, a post I have held for just under two years. In that time I have seen how extremely committed childminders are to ensuring the high quality of the childcare services they offer to children and families; how much they invest in their own professional development and how much NCMA supports them in doing so.
