I have been described as a real life example of the application of transferable skills. I started my life as a Librarian in Teachers Colleges which got me interested in education and training. I spent the fist 10 years in and around Higher Ed either supporting lecturers and students in becoming teachers and later as a lecturer myself. I then used my skills and knowledge and transferred into corporate information. Eventually education and training beckoned me back and in the last 10 years I have worked in and around the VET (Vocational Education and Training) sector. I now also work supporting teacher-librarians in the P-12 sector as Exec Officer of SLAV.
My own PLN and web 2.00 skills can both be described as patchy, So this will provide me with the opportunity to learn, consolidate and ultimately work smarter across the different roles I have.
