What do you teach at Coleg y Cymoedd?

Public Services 

What is your greatest achievement during your time with us?

My greatest achievement personally happened while working with Public Services - this was successfully climbing a mountain,: albeit it was only Pen-y-Fan but anyone who knows me would vouch for the fact that I am not normally a lover of anything that energetic.  I have climbed it twice since and today I am far more physically active and much more health conscious - this is a direct result of working on this course with the team.   Academically my greatest achievement was successfully gaining a Master’s Degree in 2012.

Tell us about your career and experience in Industry

I have had a varied career since leaving school at 16.  I started off like most people of my era working on a Government Scheme which quickly led me into full time employment.  I have always been ambitious and this ambition has kept me driven over the past 37 years, I have run several business and been quite enterprising over the years – I enjoyed being my own boss and this suited my lifestyle until I decided to return to full time education at the college in 1996 where I achieved a post graduate degree in my first three years.  I suppose you can say I got bitten by the learning bug and I continue to learn and gain qualifications to this day.

Tell us about your qualifications

I have a strong portfolio of qualifications which allows me to bring different experiences into the course and the classroom.  I have a Master’s degree in Leadership and Management which is an asset for the employability units I deliver.  I also have a Honours Degree in Education and Training and I am a fully qualified further education qualified lecturer.

Something interesting about you

I have been the secretary of my local, senior rugby club on and off for the past 25 years this is a passion of mine – this activity/responsibility keeps very me busy most weekends.   I engage in a wide range of roles within this club which is invaluable to me in my teaching capacity giving me a range of practical experience to draw on.
