Make a loan. Change a life. Click the link above to find out how your school can get involved in supporting small businesses in developing countries with microloans that repay themselves so you can lend the same money again!
I am retiring at Easter 2019 after almost 30 years working in education welfare. Read more about why at RETIREMENT. This website will then be closed down once the final round of FORUM Training Attendance Officer courses is complete. (Places are still available for the 3 initial seminars in January - see link below).
Until then I am still committed to promoting a welfare-based and strategic approach to managing attendance, not only a focus on improving the figures. I will offer you an informed and independent voice that gives you real practical help in carrying out your statutory duties and which seeks to promote more effective solutions for those children and young people who most need them.
But there is more to life than work so you'll also find a page where I write about my other main interest. Can Christianity and its central figure mean anything to those who are not convinced that conventional ideas of 'God' take us where we need to go as modern, thoughtful, rational human beings?
