This chapter works to draw together some of the themes that have been discussed throughout the book so far and to contextualise them through the lense of expertise.  To further this a discussion around the importance and role of becoming an “expert” in your field supports readers to identify what of their own qualities quantify as an expert practitioner.

For a discussion on the importance of expertise and competence in the FAVE sector, see:
