sometimes i go in early and sometimes i stay late.
but not all of the time.
the ministry of fun, aka my employer, has decided in its infiinite wisdom, that everything old is out and everything new is in.
a government initiative don't you know?
we had visitors from the ministry of fun the other day.
our fearless leader, who works off site, didn't accompany them this time.
so it was just me, my co-worker and the two bigwigs.
and 15 'mature' students.
mature as in their ages, i.e. 18- 65
perhaps not so mature in some other ways.
the bigwigs wanted to 'observe'.
they wanted us to 'explain' our program delivery under the new mandate.
i decided it might be best to let the students 'explain'.
'go ahead.' i offered. 'why don't YOU explain to these big wigs WHY you are here, what your goals are and HOW this program is helping you work towards those goals."
after all if i'm not delivering the goods as the M.O.F. requires then this must surely filter down to the learners.
but let's just say, some of them may have wandered away from the main idea. occasionally.
supplying details of their personal lives, relationships and social activities as well.
all most interesting.
one of the big wigs seemed to be enthralled.
the other, not so much.
it gave me a laugh anyway.
