Qualified Teacher for Music, Guitar Repair and Computing
Qualified as a teacher in 1995. Experience with teaching from ages 7 to 85 in formal and informal settings. Subject Advisor for Initial Teacher Training. Assistant Head Teacher and Subject Leader for Computer Studies. Successful career.
When not marking papers, I enjoy my time teaching people how to play and repair guitars, whilst following my other passions for cooking and traveling the country.
I'm very much a creative person, making the most of life and my interests. And that's also included self employment, something that I really enjoy. I particularly loved the Guitar Repair 'employability' projects that I'd established and ran for a number of years .. and actually secured European Social Funding to deliver the programs, and received a national 'EU Funds Winner' award for the most progress made with individuals. I'm very proud of that, extremely proud of those folks who used the training programs to improve their lives in even the smallest ways, and grateful for those who gave their time freely to help where possible.
Most importantly for me, when you're on my training courses, is that you're inspired, you benefit from the training, and you're enjoying it!
I'll leave it at that, and look forward to seeing you on my training programs.
