What is your name?
My name is Piet and second name is Kommerce, typical Dutch name.
Where are you from?
Why and how did you get Skillability platform? Why do you think is important?
Well, mainly because it’s really crucial for whole society. It’s not only for the particular students who have some particular deficit or limitation. We all have limitation, but especially from Pedagogical point, it’s so crucial that young people have opportunities to do more than being schooled and to find their strengths.
Why do you want other mentors to join in the project?
I see more and more that you see this kind of division in society. People who are working, people are learning, people who are retiring. And the last group is huge in terms of mental capacity, in terms of attention, dedication. So I think this is a wide group. We should use it, we should benefit from it. And we don’t do it normally, but Skillability has the potential to guide and to nurture the future. Mentoring is perfect.
