Derek’s Bio

All about Derek…

I’m married with two children. We love fun days out, catching up with family and friends and being active as much as I can!

I’m a former PE Teacher, having changed career to undertake a new challenge after 20 years! I also wanted to be able to be around more for my family and not miss out on too many special moments.

I am a real people person and I really thrive from being able to help. I especially enjoy supporting learners to overcome challenges, to be a part of the moment when everything clicks for someone and progress is made. It provides me with a great sense of achievement.

Colleagues and family members say I have a calm, patient and friendly approach to life.
