I joined what was then Dunstable College in 1995 and am a lecturer
there and a member of the Academic Board.
Central Bedfordshire College is a friendly Further Education college
where I teach mainly National Diploma students on two-year courses
in IT. This certainly keeps me up-to-date in terms of students'
views and attitudes and I am forever trying to find simpler ways
to manage all the paperwork!
It's a long trek down the A5 from where I live and I am gradually
reducing my contract hours there to allow more time to work with
other institutions in a consultant capacity. I've learned a lot
there and made some good friends amongst the staff and a few very
talented students who can now help me with some of the more really
difficult private clients' requests!
