I have a passion for distance learning. As well as having worked on ICS Learn's distance learning programmes since 1988, I also do some distance learning work for the University of East London, and I set up and ran a distance learning CIPD course for Worcester College of Technology from 1992 until 2011.

I have seen how effective distance learning programmes can be in giving people opportunities to get really valuable career-improving qualifications.

As well as having 40 years of teaching experience, I've been a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD since the late 1990s. My qualifications include: BA History /Economics/Politics 1974 (Keele University), Certificate of Education 1981 (Birmingham University), and an MA Industrial Relations 1988 (Warwick University).
