Our Agile Learning Facilitators (ALFs) come from a diverse range of backgrounds and professions resulting in a healthy mix of interests, skills, talents and experiences that students can draw and learn from. Aside from being trained in the ALC method, they are all parents with grown-up children and so have the benefit of drawing from their own rich experiences as well.
