By my late forties and after a range of careers including forming and running my own business I came to a point (inspired by the loss of said company, home, etc.) where I decided to take a Degree as a mature student. I selected Philosophy, History and Film as my subject areas and spent three enjoyable years studying in Boston College and De Montfort University, Leicester.
During the final weeks of my degree I was given the opportunity to help with an A-level History course at Boston College which led to me being offered a place to teach the following year. From there I progressed to teaching a range of subjects and eventually work on the Access to Higher Education programme.
After teaching in India for four years Boston College offered me a new teaching place on the A-level World Development programme and I have been here ever since.
