Seeking a new challenge following more than 25 years working in the industry and travelling across the world, Colin joined Sunderland College in 2008.

I have over 10 years experience of working in further education.

I have 25 years experience in industry, from apprentice to senior management and working across the globe.

I am a lecturer in electrical installation, teaching a range of Level 3 full time students and apprentices.

I felt I was ready for a new challenge and education was it.

Seeing our students succeed.

I have many, but seeing an apprentice qualify always hits the spot.

The personal pride I have in my work and student achievement.
