      ''Building an education system which develops deep skills and wide capabilities in young people is essential. The idea of Expansive Education is a truly compelling way of cultivating the kinds of learners the world needs and its ideas are taking root here in Australia. I am a strong supporter of expansive approaches to learning and was delighted to be able to honour their creator, Bill Lucas, with one of our prestigious fellowships in recognition of his thought leadership.'
      Bella Irlicht, CEO, International Specialised Skills Institute Australia
