Success is seldom acquired; always earned ...

If you follow this blog and occasionally pay attention, it often presents observations of education at its finest as well as most fetid.

Observing some attitudes in the skills competitions, it strikes me that for some out there. The notion of acquiring success is more important that growing and developing the talent pool that would create successful competitors.

Watching former colleagues; I am more inclined to believe it is a culture of development, mentoring and motivation. From this you find competitors that have the magic 'it factor' and stand a chance of success.

Yet out there are educational establishments and training providers that could be suspected of being more interested in the short term accolade. Rather than putting in the effort required to garner repeated success.

The two best british competitors have come from one college in the last six years. Without a doubt, it wasn't the college as a whole, but the considered efforts of one soul with the support of a few others that has given this credence.
