In 2010, we had to make some BIG personal and professional decisions. Reflecting on our own learning journeys in the world of education, we felt privileged to have learned from and worked alongside some wonderful people, who have been mentors, coaches, teachers and friends. Our shared passion was learning and the desire to provide learners (of any age) with the best possible opportunities to explore the world and their own potential, to achieve and excel, to value others and to value themselves.
Whatever the political and pedagogical weather, we have steered our course using the above ideals and values as our compass. It has not always been ‘plain sailing’, and never will be. Sometimes maintaining integrity comes at a price. Change is inevitable, but progress is optional. We have always attempted to adapt so that changes, whether voluntary or imposed, would serve the best interests of the learner and their future lives.
Sharing our practice and facilitating training was never art of the plan! It just happened. And, we are grateful to those people who identified potential within us, inspired us, nurtured us and helped us to grow.
