Quite a milestone today in that this business, Get Pro Copy Ltd, turns 4
Its genesis came about at a low point in my personal and professional life, when it became obvious that I had to find something new today to save my sanity and writing was the plan.
I’ve always loved writing
From the age of four, I was an avid reader and writer and it was something I did well. I’ve always had a microscopic talent with spelling and writing mawkish poems about family and home were my first forays into the written word.
We were lucky then too in 1969 and 1970 as teachers were plentiful, happy in their jobs and so keen to nurture the young people in their charge. School was wonderful back then.
It’s why I snort when I read objections to Ofsted being abolished – Ofsted and the Academy programme have dismantled education piece by piece and I doubt now that some 4 year old in 2019 would have their enthusiasm fired up like we did. Staff who were stable and permanent.
Education, in my view, is broken.
