"This Fellowship allowed me to attend a nine week internship at the INSTAP centre in Eastern Crete. During which time I also visited 13 archaeological sites and three archaeological museums. This Fellowship has had a positive impact on my confidence in my abilities as a conservator as well as allowing me to develop my networking skills. I feel more prepared to step into private practice in Melbourne with better hand skills and experience of a wider range of treatments."

"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.”

"This is a rare opportunity for professionals to learn complimentary skills and be exposed to ideas that they would not otherwise be exposed to. The benefits to the sector and hard to foresee, as the influences are often unexpected. However ultimately what the Fellowship enables is rich, deep learning that can translate into a wide range of scenarios for the professional, enabling them to expand their leadership skill set and become a champion of change."
