Since starting my teaching career in 1988 I have gained a wide range of experience covering all pupils in the 11-18-age group and indeed adults in Italy, Belgium and Somerset. I have also taught across the academic spectrum, from pupils with learning difficulties, Key Stage 3 of the National Curriculum, GCSE, AS/A Level and Intermediate and Advanced vocational programmes and up to Open University Access students. Moreover, I have taught within a number of curriculum areas, including History, Humanities, English, Study Skills, English as a Foreign/Second Language, Dance, Drama, Expressive Arts and Performance Studies. I feel that I have acquired a broad and flexible approach to education by working in a variety of contexts. I have been able to change location and/or subject at quite short notice, which has also increased my flexibility and management of workload.
I also work as an A Level examiner and BTEC Standards Verifier. As a father of two daughters I understand the parental role of supporting students through GCSE and post-16 study.
