About Kevin Beatty

BA (Hons), PGCE, MA

“With a degree in Sport and Leisure Management he worked in the health and fitness, cardiac rehabilitation and uniformed public service sector Kevin left to train as a teacher and gained his PGCE from Canterbury Christ Church University. Whilst teaching full time in an Academy and later in a technology school he earned his MA in Teaching and Learning.  When Kevin’s last school closed down he decided to leave the schools sector and move into teaching within industry.  This practical experience of teaching makes Kevin’s courses more than just lectures or death by powerpoint for delegates, instead sessions are practical, challenging and relevant and the delegates leave with confidence and knowledge in the subject matter and having had some fun along the way.”
