In 2008 I received a request from my employer to attend and present at an IPN conference in Finland. From the moment I walked into the conference I knew it was going to be an exceptional
education experience for myself and my colleagues, and I was not wrong.
Since 2008 I have been fortunate enough to attend this conference every 2 years around the world, learning new things, creating international partnerships, working with those who I have meet in sharing and receiving information and research on projects from around the world.
Attending the IPN conference has enabled me to think big, think outside the square and utilise all the learning I have gained and place this into my current working practices with the assistance of the great people I have meet at these conferences.
The IPN Conference is an experience not to be missed, see y'all at Houston!
Every time I attended the IPN conference, I returned reassured that there are people around the world that understand how important it is to provide opportunities for youth to learn
experientially. Building partnerships between schools and businesses has its challenges. Attending this conference refreshes my energy and I return ready to continue to be innovative in education.
Lifelong friendships have resulted from attending the IPN conferences. Hope to meet you in Houston, Texas!
Attending the IPN Network events has brought a new perspective to our work. It is wonderful hearing about and being inspired by projects around the world. One thing I learnt at my first conference was how similar the skills issues are whatever continent we look at. As The Skills Service we network extensively in the UK but this has helped us build not just networks internationally but friendships too. Importantly, the awards have given reward and recognition to our dedicated team here.
