Educational pathway

My youth work involvement began at the age of 6!
Most important learning experiences of my life were mainly gained in informal education and then enriched through reflection, feedback and self-directed learning. More recently I have been gaining more facets of my learning to learn competence both in terms of process and goal. It's very important to stress that self-directed learning does not become selfish learning!
