Technical Advisor Alicja Twarowska

Alicja Twarowska

“I am very passionate about lifelong learning and supporting people to develop skills in English, maths and digital, alongside employability. I strongly believe that these skills are essential for individuals to participate fully in their communities and the workforce, and to make informed decisions about their lives.  Lifelong learning also has personal benefits: it can enhance self-esteem, boost confidence, promote personal fulfilment and, ultimately, enable people to live happier lives.”
