“I originally trained and completed my degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and then went on to work in industry as an Electronic Engineer within the field of military electronics and semiconductors working for companies such as BAE Systems, GEC and RS Components.
“I was looking for a change of career into teaching and fell into maths purely by accident, eventually spending five years as Curriculum Manager for Maths. I led an underperforming department to become one of the leading Maths FE departments in the country which was incredibly rewarding. In 17 years of teaching I know I have made a difference to hundreds of lives – work doesn’t get much better than that.”
