At the start of another week I attended our induction programme for colleagues new to Education Leeds. The thing that always cheers me up about the new colleagues is their bright enrgetic and enthusiastic approach, their ideas, their passionate commitment and their potential. I shouldn't really be surprised because this is the group who have just joined Education Leeds... just signed up... and should be totally committed, totally engaged and not at all cynical about the future... or why join? I always think it is strange to think about the power and the potential we have here in Leeds to change the world if only we could get everyone to believe... to believe passionately in themselves and understand that they really are talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful.

The question we must all ask ourselves is what couldn't 18000 plus human beings achieve if they work together as a team. What couldn't we learn in the 18000 plus years of experience that we collectively accumulate every year?

What couldn't we do if we put our minds to it?
