Introduction to the GAC World (IGW).


Charles has taught and trained for nearly twenty five years, in both the state and private sector and students from four years to eighty years of age. Currently, he teaches computer science at an independent school in the south west of England, but also works as a freelance trainer for clients across the UK.

Charles is passionate about the use of technology to improve teaching and learning. As such, he recently completed a course in Moodle, e-learning theory and teaching online. In 2017 he is hoping to become TAPS accredited and learn to use Articulate and Captivate. He recently became an appointed governor at a state school in the UK and is really enjoying seeing a different side to education.

Charles brings sound judgment and a sense of perspective, combined with a sense of humor to his role as Facilitator. He communicates in a manner which is accessible without compromising professionalism and proper professional distance. Charles has a “can do attitude”, the ability to identify problems and the desire to provide the appropriate solutions.
