Early Years Specialism

Since gaining the NNEB at 18, Suzanne has worked extensively in the Early Years sector in many different areas, including within the NHS, day nurseries, FE and HEI, as practitioner, assessor, tutor and manager. Jeff and Suzanne have also been foster carers for many years.


45+ Years Experience

The 2 partners have over 45 years experience working within Early Years, and only slightly less in Children, Young People and Families.

Every member of the board have been known to the partners for many years, and have been chosen because of their extensive experience in either one of the sectors, or in Apprenticeships.

Family Run

As a family run business, the husband and wife team would describe their ethos in three words – honest, professional and personal. SSES strives to ensure that every person we work with feels secure in the knowledge that they are working with a team that values the ethos and vision of the partners

“Suzanne is one in a million. We have worked together in a number of areas, supporting apprentices to achieve their goals. Suzanne has a wealth of experience in the early years and young people sector and is a great mentor.”
