Teaching is a noble profession held in high esteem for centuries. Growing up, I came across amazing teachers who made a difference. So, I finally chose to become an SEN teacher and did my Master's in Special Education. I have vast experience teaching in several sectors ranging from SEN teaching, remedial teacher, school counsellor for helping parents and children, and preschool/kindergarten to primary and secondary education.
I find myself constantly giving advice to others who are interested in becoming an External verifier or indeed like myself have a passion for quality. The reason I feel compelled to do this is based on my own experience when starting out. This started with Internal Quality Assurance and eventually led to External Quality Assurance, across several sectors.
