My love of teaching started at school where I used to teach younger children PE in my free periods and military skills as a member of the Combined Cadet Force. After school, I spent 22 years teaching all aspects of Physical Education in the RAF, gaining a First Class Honours Degree in Sports Science, and became a medical tutor for the Football Association. I have taught scuba diving for many years and am an Advanced Instructor and Instructor Trainer for the British Sub-Aqua Club, as well as an instructor for the National Cadets Dive Team.
On leaving the RAF, I qualified as a Registered Osteopath, giving me a much deeper knowledge of the human body, and what can go wrong with it, as well as becoming a freelance first aid and paediatric first aid trainer. I have also completed the teaching qualification Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) with the College commenting that the application was “The best piece of work ever submitted for the qualification.”
Having experience of teaching in several different disciplines means I am able to take the best from each and create a fun, enjoyable, and ultimately, effective learning experience for participants.
