WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE
Presently working along side the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP). Running IT sessions as part of the DWP Young men project. This involves delivering fun IT / Computing sessions to small groups. This has been using Raspberry Pi’s and Scratch along with a PiStop traffic light board, we are now moving on to developing websites with WordPress.
I would like to do something similar in after school or holiday clubs. I have experience working with children, young people and adults. I also have access to hardware such as Raspberry Pi.
The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost, credit card–sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing and learn programming.

Outside of this my current activities also include running the Torbay Tech jam the main aim of which is to help people develop IT skills and in particular encouraging people to learn to develop, programming, problem solving skills. I am also involved with the Torbay Trojans American Football team.
I am committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable groups and expect any school or establishment I am involved with to share this commitment.
