I have had a full UK British education. I hold an honours degree in science from the Open University. I have also undergone teacher training via the PGCE route with the University of East London to obtain QTS. Following this I worked in several schools where I gained FULL QTS. Approximatlely about 4 to 5 years ago I became an examiner for one of the major examining boards. In total I have about 15 years teaching experience. Whilst studying my subject degree I also worked as an industrial chemist.
