The privilege to be influential in helping shape the VET Training landscape in schools is pretty special to me! I love working with young people and really helping them find another route to success and achievement that they may not have previously considered. Learning can take many forms, but I love the hands-on and practical nature of vocational training. Curating awesome resources & equipping trainers to give students the chance to thrive and really grow their skills and confidence in my daily pursuit.
