TECHNICAL FIELDS

As stated in our manifesto, one of our core values is that we only work on technical matters if you need us to develop educational material for you content-wise.

For our teacher training course, the atelier, the  ‘fit for purpose’ package and the ‘punctual interventions card’ too, we tend to curate peer groups around the technical fields below, simply because in that way our knowledge and understanding of these fields stays fresh and up to date.

We work with clients including higher educational institutions, government, think tanks, corporations, and (at times) civil society organisations.

Our lead senior consultant and teacher trainer has a solid background in various technical fields, for a CV see LinkedIn.

Tikvah Breimer’s (MSc MEd MSc) technical background include the following topics. In these fields, she is well-versed with the technical words (discourse), worldview (paradigm) and body of knowledge, even contemporary thinking and expert networks, so that as a client you don’t start from scratch with telling what it is that you need. Tikvah Breimer always keeps updating herself in these fields, out of curiosity and love for the subjects, and the conversation with you will be a delight, to keep learning where fields are moving.
