"After working from home for such an extended period of time, I started to feel like I was losing my touch.  Not being in a face to face learning environment can really start to take an affect on the quality of your teaching.

Having a conversation with someone like Dannie from their quality management team, was really beneficial. He had such a clear focus on teaching,  learning and assessment, which was felt on the phone right away.He went the extra mile to make sure I was not only the right fit for the role, but also that I was as confident as I could be in achieving the role."
