Functional Skills Teacher

What do you love about working with bemix?

I love coming into bemix and seeing the young people develop their skill sets as they prepare to find work. The atmosphere that we work in is so conducive to helping them succeed! 

As a teacher I enjoy seeing the young people take the initiative with their learning, developing their skills in the classroom and then putting these into practise outside of bemix, hearing that they are feeling more confident and independent is amazing!

How long have you been involved with bemix?

I started working for bemix in Summer 2020

What is your role in bemix?

I am the Functional Skills Teacher at Medway, providing lessons for the Young People in Citizenship, Maths and English. 

What did you do before you joined bemix?

Before joining bemix I spent several years working within education, my most recent role as a Computer Science/ICT and Business Studies teacher at an SEMH Secondary School. 

What do you enjoy doing when you're not working?

I enjoy spending my time creatively – painting, making things and reading. I also enjoy looking after our family pets, from the cats to the sheep to the donkeys to the pigs!
