Full Profile

With almost twenty years of teaching experience at both FE (Further Education) and HE (Higher Education) Institutions and gaining approximately equal amounts of time in each, there is no doubt it certainly provides a learning experience and environment that poses a variety of challenges and an opportunity to continually refine skills within the teaching profession. David's development of strategic thinking and business strategy is an ever expanding field of knowledge and necessary for organisational survival, David believes that teaching in this area is therefore important at graduate and postgraduate level.
