After 11 years in the insurance industry I saw the light and became a teacher. Since then I have worked in a number of schools across Greater Manchester and West Cumbria as a teacher and supply teacher.
Although I have moved on from the classroom I am still working in education, although now in FE. My current role is a local market analyst which aims to match the college curriculum with local business needs.
I also do private tuition as well as writing about educational issues.
I also write for the local, free newspaper, The Egremont2Day. A small paper with a dedicated team of volunteers.
