Digital Development & Application Support Officer', Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT)
Richard joined Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT) in 2018 as an NQT having spent 15 years in the events industry as an Engineer & Technical Production Manager. Whilst in the classroom, Richard was quick to embed his passion for technology into his pedagogy introducing Apple school manager, as well as many other things, into the school. He was then a pilot class for the use of school based one-to-one devices. This thirst for digital learning, and prior experience of technology, has brought him out of the classroom and into the trust central team to work with all the TSAT schools (and beyond) in developing the use of technology for teaching & learning, including the roll out of one-to-one Windows devices. After a brief but informative time as an Apple Teacher, he now collects Microsoft Badges and is a Microsoft Certified Expert (MCE) & Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Trainer.
