BCoT held its first virtual open event of the academic year on Tuesday 13 October.
Anthony was appointed Principal of BCoT in 2009. He qualified as a teacher at Newcastle University, after gaining a degree in Agriculture and Environmental Science. Education has always been his passion, although he loved working in the private sector and became the first graduate management trainee at Marks & Spencer's flagship Marble Arch store.
Anthony re-entered the education sector some 20 years ago and remained for 15 of those years in an FE environment, focusing particularly on partnership, community, income generation and most recently workforce development. In July 2003, he was appointed to set up Crossways Academy, Lewisham which became a CISCO world reference site for use of ICT in education, as well as providing a template for integrated smart building technology.
Anthony is also pleased to serve as a Governor for Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, representing North Hampshire and West Berkshire.
