I’ve been working at the forefront of the tech industry for over a decade, building everything from an Immigration case working system for the Home Office, to a digital visitor guide for the Tower of London.
Working with companies ranging from start-ups to blue-chip international organisations has provided me with sound understanding of business requirements and the qualities that make great employees.
In my role as a _nology trainer, I can apply my experience working with businesses and their people and combine it with my knowledge and love of tech to help students become developers with a rounded understanding of coding within the context of business needs.
Throughout my career, I’ve sought to nurture the talent of others. I’ve found that given a bit of initial support and the right opportunity, anyone can become an effective coder and a valuable member of a dev team.
What do I do differently? Well, I think getting into tech should be more accessible and appealing. I try to boost interest by incorporating modern tech where I can - be it programming a raspberry pi, developing Skills for Amazon’s Alexa or designing mobile apps.
"To ensure I support candidates throughout their journey, I draw on both my experience learning in intensive settings and years of teaching."
"It’s also exciting to be part of an innovative, connected, driven and hardworking team, all focused on achieving _nology’s ambitions by using our creative and cultural energy to drive success."
"Together with the _nology team, I’m focused on ensuring those on the conversion course are able to put their skills into practice, not just in theory."
"I’m excited about helping to dispel the myth that you need to be a scientist, maths genius or an electrical engineer in order to have a successful career in tech."
"I'm passionate about baking this core skill into the _nology programme, creating developers who are creative problem solvers."
"Beginning to learn code was a revelation for me and spurred me to found _nology. Because if I can do it, anyone can!"
"I’m taking _nology from concept to reality, driving its evolution in line with the changing needs and overseeing every step of the process."
