2015: professional development review

So, I have half an hour left of my last working day of 2015, my desk is about as tidy as it’s ever going to get… So I think I’ve got time for a quick reflection on how the year has gone! Mainly, it’s gone…fast. It doesn’t seem five minutes since I was writing my […]

2015: the year of learning and development
