Transform.Ed Briefing #28
Inside the Briefing: From ‘Education for Homeland Earth’ and Building Better Formal TVET Systems in Low and Middle-Income Countries to the Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph!
On July 20, 1969, humanity landed on the moon for the first time. Though a small step, it was a giant leap for all of us on earth, as it changed the way we saw the universe. Such is the magnitude of tiny little steps that we take towards our growth every day.
In a similar vein, last week when we asked our subscribers about the most impactful approach for their continuous professional development, 60% believed that joining a professional community and networking with peers has helped them the most. A professional community can unlock access to seasoned professionals, valuable capacity-building and upskilling resources, and a plethora of growth opportunities.
