A Welsh Follower for Our Site

A Colleague from Wales

How exciting to have Michelle Roles from the Welsh Education Workforce Council following our AVETRA Educator Hub site.  Welcome along Michelle.  It would be wonderful to get some international perspectives on our discussions.  Please feel free to reply to any existing post – either with a reaction to the topic, or to start a new conversation.

We love our international colleagues!
