Teach like a pirate!


WEA tutors

Much of the work we do in the WEA is about engaging people in education and learning who missed out and feel or felt it was not for them.

We also of course work with many repeat students who have caught the bug and love learning.   But for the others we have not yet managed to engage, what will or can make a difference and enough of a difference to make them step back inside a classroom or learning space for the first time (even if we don’t call it that).

This is something I and many colleagues are very interested in.  How do we engage with missing learners?

We know the basics – go to the mountain not the other way round, fish where the fish are and get out and find people where they feel comfortable and safe.   But what do we do when we get…

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for www.3aaa.co.uk where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
