I studied Photography, Graphics and Video at Yale College in Wrexham before going on to complete a degree in Electronic Graphics at Staffordshire University, followed by a PGCE.
I taught for a while at Yale College before making the big step to go travelling. One place in particular I wanted to visit was Russia and I ended up working and living there for over five years.
Since 2011, I’ve been a tutor at Dysgu Bro Ceredigion. Dysgu Bro is Ceredigion County Council’s Adult Community Learning provider. It aims to provide learning opportunities for people across the communities of Ceredigion to develop new interests, work towards gaining a qualification or improve their skills for their work.
We deliver courses at community venues, workplaces or at one of our venues; Aberaeron, Canolfan Rheidol, HCT Llanbadarn, Llandysul Dysgu Bro Centre or Cardigan Dysgu Bro Centre.
I teach a variety of Digital Skills from Web Design, Adobe Photoshop, Social Media to Microsoft Office (Word, Excel etc).
Most of my classes are held at Canolfan Rheidol during the day and at HCT in Llanbadarn in the evenings. I enjoy delivering a variety of subjects however it’s the creative courses I enjoy the most, from Typography to digital photography. I teach a variety of learners from all different ages and backgrounds from 14 to 95 years of age.
I also teach out in the local community including Cletwr community cafe near Talybont and Theatr Felinfach.
I also teach staff in the Council as well as delivering to businesses such as The Red Cross, FUW, Arad Goch. So, if you’re looking to train your staff at a local location at a reasonable price, consider Dysgu Bro Ceredigion.
I have one great group that have been meeting up for seven years now, every Tuesday morning. They show continuing enthusiasm in wanting to develop their digital skills.
At Dysgu Bro we deliver many courses and qualifications in a variety of subjects from European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) to First Aid, from iPads to even an introduction to Crime Scene Forensic Science! Courses are held during the day and evenings. In January we began some new courses including Yoga, Screen printing and Glass Painting. So, if you’re looking to learn something new in 2019, contact Dysgu Bro Ceredigion.
Or why not pop along to our open evening on 6 March at HCT Llanbadarn between 3pm and 7pm to find out more about what we can offer? We will be offering a variety of evening short courses the week beginning 11 March so this will be an ideal time to come and find out more.
