I joined Ruskin in 2005 as the IT tutor. I work in the short course (FE) department The role involves the development , coordination and delivery of all the accredited IT courses at the college from Entry Level to Level 3. I also work with supporting students with IT issues at HE level.
I have a Research Science background and came into IT in 2001. I have worked both in a prison setting and at other colleges/ institutions providing opportunities for vulnerable adults to enhance their skills for progression either to further study or employment.
My experience working with learners that have had a poor educational experience or have been out of education for some time has been invaluable in work my role at Ruskin College.
I enjoy teaching adults learners from a diverse background. Seeing them progress and grow in confidence is extremely rewarding. Being a small college also appealed as it enables you to engage with/ support the learners more closely.
