  1. Why did you become a Media Works Facilitator?

I enjoy contributing to people’s lives through uplifting and empowering them through education.

 

  1. Tell us about how you approach facilitation?

I try to introduce discussion points for the learners while we work through the curriculum. By bringing in current affairs and other topics of discussion it makes the theory more relevant to the learners.

 

  1. What are the highs and lows of your job?

What I love about facilitation is that each learner has had an impact on me one way or another. I enjoy interacting with them and learning from them. I don’t enjoy the marking.
