Clive has a BSc in electronics and computer science and, after a number of design jobs, worked as an electronics design engineer at a nuclear fusion (not fission!) research centre for 21 years. He found that helping at a local special needs school was immensely rewarding and in 2008 he took off to follow a dream: working as an independent volunteer teacher. He taught basic computing to 6-20 year-olds and craftswomen at an NGO in India for 18 months, and then to teachers from rural schools at an NGO in Sri Lanka for 12 months. He firmly believes in encouraging curiosity and creativity in the classroom and sees them as the key to unlocking the true potential of our students. Although back in the UK now, he fully intends to continue his overseas voluntary work in the future. He believes that, amongst other things, education is crucial for the eradication of poverty, the improvement of health and well-being, the enjoyment of life and the enhancement of global harmony.
