Why B&FC?

Following several years running my own business in the late eighties I decided on a career change into IT.

As I didn’t have any technical qualification at this time I decided to retrain and embarked on my A levels in computing at Blackpool and the Fylde College. This developed my passion for technical education which led me onto a computing degree at the college.

Following a few short years in industry I later returned to teach web development at the college that started my technological career.
