In this episode, I ask Graeme Codrington what he thinks schools should be doing to best prepare learners for their journey after school.
What I love about my conversations with Graeme is how he helps us reframe the way we think about things... helping us see things from different perspectives, and more often than not, a new way of thinking that pushes our boundaries, enabling us to think bigger...
