I have been a teacher for 25 years. I have always been fascinated by connections made within the learning environment and how this can lead to greater curiosity, creativity, problem solving, adaptability, enthusiasm, collaboration and especially, potential.
When I changed roles to work with CareerRadar, I noticed the disconnect between how we get our students ready for work & the ever-changing business world. The education system is very much subject led & focusing on achieving levels & passing exams. I believe that our current education system needs information from business to guide, to inspire & to highlight the developments & vision of the business world. Students & teachers could then be directing their best efforts into a learning journey which has value and relevance to the future.
