I'm working from 1985 to 2016 as headmaster in second chance education. In my school - Weiterbildungskolleg Mönchengladbach - we try to make a difference for disadvantaged youngsters. Though we are a well respected institution in our city. To spread our experience and encourage others to share best practice we are engaged in E2C Network. It was great for me and my school to be part of a regional movement to change the traditional lecturing in schools into cooperative teaching and learning. Based on that I offer for about 15 years training in cooperative learning around Europe. In addition to that pedagogical part of my profession, I can share 30 years of experience as member of a national trade union board, dedicated to teacher training, and 40 years of experience in local policy, even 6 years as district mayor and nowadays as member of city council.
