Well, I could edit the header picture and, maybe, someday I shall but for now it is both representative of me and of the world of learning in which I believe so passionately.
Brought up in Penzance, in the ‘toe’ of England, city lights and global air-travel were unknown. Yet, in that pre-internet era, a love of ‘finding out’ and ‘getting better’ at things was sparked and nurtured by a number of people. Today, many years later, I’m still learning, occasionally getting better and am widely involved in creating all sorts of learning and qualifications programmes. I still think of Cornwall as home.
So, the header picture suits the personal ‘me’ but what about the learning and qualifications side?
That picture is a landscape of many elements: differently shaped self-contained fields, a road, hills, valleys, cliffs and the seeming emptiness of the sea. Each element on its own is not much. Together, it all works. What’s more, it works as a whole but also in sub-sections (the fields make a farm, etc.)
Making sense of what we see and use of what we know: learning and qualifications.
