My Stand Out Moments
- Enabling disengaged young people an opportunity to be listened to and to design learning programmes that inspired and energised them.
- Moving to Myanmar and being an integral part of the design and delivery of one of the first Graduate training schemes to ever exist within the country and witnessing their on-going development.
- Seeing the passion for learning that exists in people as Myanmar open it’s eyes to the world and helping to provide a method of active learning that many have not had the opportunity to experience before.
- Helping a group of less confident adults to become aware of their personal strengths and to confidently voice these to one another.
What Ignites My Fire
- Experiencing people ‘learning by doing’.
- Proving that individuals can learn whilst having fun.
- Seeing people experiencing behaviour change and embracing it.
