New staff join the team!
We have three new members of staff joining the BTS team – here is a little about each of them…
Teacher of Science, Engineering and Product Design
I am now in my fifth and hopefully final career, having spent most of the past 30 years since graduation working in the Electronics industry; firstly as a Design Engineer of recording studio equipment, then moving into sales and marketing of electronic components for the bulk of my career. I then left the electronics industry to fulfil a dream of building my own house and then setting up my own business, designing and constructing low-energy garden buildings.
Outside of teaching I play an active part in the local drama group “The Quaintwood Players” and I am leader of the local Explorer Scout group.
Teacher of Mathematics and Engineering
I hold a PhD in mathematical physics from the University of Warwick. I have been a teacher in FE for over ten years.
I enjoy reading, science and mathematical books. My favourite numbers are the square-root of negative one and the mersenne primes. I am curious about patterns in nature (fractal geometry) and I love teaching mathematics.
Head of Communications Faculty and Teacher of English
I have been teaching English for 17 years and I am preparing to start studying for my Masters Degree in English Literature by reading some Greek Tragedies.
