Here’s another media mention, this time on the STV website. Click here to go to the article:
Here’s my quote:
“I was working in a College of Teacher Education where students are trained to become primary school teachers. The experience was much more challenging than I thought it would be, but in a good way as I definitely needed a new career challenge.
“It’s so satisfying to be able to share my own professional skills and know that it’s helping to make a difference.
“I also learnt a great deal of management and leadership skills. Volunteering with VSO has definitely enhanced my career. I’ve returned to Edinburgh and will be starting a more senior position this month and the valuable skills I learnt in Ethiopia will see me better equipped to handle my new role.”
