I have been a chef lecturer since 2008, joining UCB in 2019. After leaving college where I studied my City & Guilds 706/1 and NVQ Level 3 Chef Diploma, I worked in a variety of privately owned and larger chain restaurants and hotels. During the course of my teaching career I have worked in two other further education establishments, one of which involved working at Kidderminster Harriers Football Club training apprentices. I have experience of teaching both NVQ and VRQ professional cookery courses at a variety of levels and have served as a mentor on the Level 2 Professional Cookery Diploma.
