Fifteen years ago, I enrolled on the Intermediate Office Skills course at Doncaster College. I worked my way through the various Office Skills qualifications the College had to offer before taking my teaching qualifications and joining the lecturing staff in 2003.

From September 2009, I became the Course Leader for Business Administration. It feels good to have gained this position, especially as I studied on the same course sixteen years ago.

I also teach on a range of programmes across our Business provision.  i enjoy the business environment and working with our students.   Seeing our students achieve their qualifications is what makes the role/job worthwhile.  I look forward to meeting you to discuss your options.
