A huge welcome to the training site of JPC Community farm. As Director of Training, my role is to facilitate independence in young people. My professional success has been a direct result of my dedication to, and my enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I have taught in all key stages in the subjects of Food Technology and associated courses, Textiles, Child Development, and Health and Social Care, all of which I feel embrace the important life long skills which are invaluable to allow young people to go forward in the world with confidence. I have always had a deep interest for Special Educational Needs (SEN) education; I am fully experienced in teaching all ages and ability levels.

I can’t wait to work with you!
