Hello there. My name is Kevin Perkins. These days I work as a freelance web designer; however, my early career was spent working as a recruiter. I enjoyed hiring people and upskilling them so that they would be an asset to the company. I became quite au fait with many aspects of education and development in order to choose appropriate courses and training schemes. I've kept up subscriptions to my education, training and development journals so that I can stay in touch with the latest trends in this area. Some of my old colleagues still contact me for advice when doing the annual professional development plans. This blog should appeal to those who have a level of curiosity about the present and future directions of education and development. I hope that it proves to be interesting.
