Educational pathway

My formal education background includes classic studies and a degree in Law. They gave me a theoretical-oriented-to-practical framework.
Non-formal learning environment was attracting me since early age and working in the field of youth is for me a life long learning experience.
I attended several training courses and workshops, among them ATTE (Advanced Training for Trainers in Europe), a long term course which in 2 years was touching a great variety of issues related to training and learning.
