Head Of Assessment
"He who cares Wins." -From a library book
I found my first flame to success spending 5 years in the army, within logistics, serving in the falklands conflict. Shortly after, taking a shine to the Steel Industry. 30 years in the logistics/transport and management industry, I was a devoted and highly valued member in all that I did. From 2006 I started my career in training, accomplishing the delivery of Business Improvement Techniques, within the John Lewis group for 7 years. I have now been conducting End Point Assessments' successfully for 4 years with my main accomplishment being here as Head Of Assessment at TRCC. Aside from work i'm a Padi Divemaster with a passion for Scuba Diving and around 1000 dives in 18 years. I also like Mountain Climbing, Hill Walking, Cycling and the occasional man stuff “DIY”, going hand in hand with staying fit and healthy.

My goals are to be healthy and successful in my business career. I hope to gain more experience and knowledge throughout the years in business and management where I can then achieve a degree level qualification in business and management in order for me to go to my dream career in the future. A relevant accomplishment I have completed is Bronze and Gold DofE and this was a once in a lifetime opportunity that allowed me to achieve relevant lifelong skills in team working, organisation, confidence, problem solving and resilience. My hobbies include spending time with my family and friends, cooking, making plans to go to new places and skiing.
