For over 15 years I have been designing adult learning for businesses, government and not-for-profit organisations including Employ for Ability, Cultural Competency Group, Northern Futures, ANZIIF, PIEF, genU Training, NDIS, WorkSafe Victoria, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Armaguard, and Virgin Australia.
Enhancing operational performance and results through targeted learning designs brings me a great deal of satisfaction, and when clients get the results they are after it is win-win. Questioning and exploring existing practices to find better ways to help individuals and teams reach their goals is my every day.
Before working in adult environments I spent 10 years as a secondary school teacher. This grounding was a fabulous way to hone the many skills I use now. The skills I draw on most in my current work are finding creative ways for people to learn, engaging learners, improvising, dealing with conflicting priorities, report writing, organising events, delivering workshops, decision making, and building meaningful relationships with learners and learning teams.
Since graduating with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Melbourne in 1995 I have continued to maintain my full teacher registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT). I am also a professional member of the Asia Pacific Institute for Learning and Performance (ILP) and the Australian Institute of Training and Development (AITD).
I am an Accredited Accessible Learning Practitioner, and have completed adult learning courses including W3Cs Introduction to Web Accessibility, current Certificate IV Training and Assessment upgrades (TAE40116), Designing for Learning and Designing for Transfer (The Institute for Learning and Performance), and the Igniting Leadership Program (Leadership Victoria).
