Why This Project, Michael?

I always appreciate a project where adult learners can discover new audiences and connect with a wider community. It's not easy to develop the skills that support resilience, when people have had bad experiences of education. So it's definitely worth celebrating when people build up their strength and adaptability in adult life.

For this project, I will be supporting and encouraging teachers and learners around Australia to share their stories with each other and the world.”
