I am excited to share this post, which sums up my past week in San Sébastian, Spain, where I was representing both Audit Express and Educonomy the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) 2022 World Congress. This past week has been one of the greatest highlights and proudest moments of my professional career.

The WFCP 2022 Congress was attended by over 1,000 professionals drawn from over 50 countries across the globe. The attendees discussed the challenges facing Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions worldwide.

The BHP FutureFit Academy has welcomed more than 590 students and is changing lives, with more than 80 percent women and over 20 percent Indigenous learners, and over 220 graduates. It has been an honour to be involved in this incredible initiative over the past 18 months!
