What does David feel about teaching at Continuing Studies?
Teaching at Continuing Studies is a two-way street. We all share work experiences. Everyone learns. And new ideas and suggestions emerge. The power of the group and its collective wisdom is something I enjoy discovering together.
The personal approach, excellent facilities and a great brand make the Western experience unique. I like the fact that the courses are affordable, practical and applicable to every
day working life. It’s a chance to stop and evaluate what you have been doing and consider some new approaches as well as learn from colleagues facing similar challenges.
