“The bestowing of Fellowship was an honour. Being able to compare and peg Australian skills against the International best (Finland) was an eye-opening experience. Sharing of the newly learned skills with colleagues in different vocational educational settings was gratifying and rewarding. The support provided to me by the ISS Institute made me feel important; I was an individual with explicit skills and expertise and with specific value equipped to make a difference in the world of education.”
