About the trainer

Hello, I'm Francis O'Neill
This page is really to let you know more about the person offering you this training.

I work out of Evesham in Worcestershire - where I have lived for the last twelve years.  I am a qualified teacher with eighteen years experience in teaching and training in IT/ICT (Information & Communications Technology) within adult learning - using both well known and some 'in-house' software.

I'm an advocate of 'lifelong-learning' and particularly helping people gain confidence in using computers and online facilities.  I've taught from beginners to the more advanced learners.

Prior to Progress with IT, I was an IT Lecturer at Gloscat (now Gloucestershire College), and later the ICT Trainer for Stratford District Council...where I also ran a UK Online Centre.  Currently I'm doing some teaching over at Bidford Community Library - you can find out more about courses there on the Home page.

Teaching experience
FON with an interactive whiteboardI've taught across a wide range of IT topics mostly to groups heading towards IT qualifications...

For example the ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence), CLAIT (Computer Literacy & Information Technology), NOCNs (National Open College Network), and a range of City & Guilds qualifications...

Teaching credentials
Apart from attending a fair amount of non-accredited training in my time, I have also taken a number of qualifications for what I do... These include:

  • PGCE (Post-Grad., Cert., in Education.)
  • City & Guilds teaching certificate
  • An ISM OnLine Trainer Certificate (Institute for Supervision & Management).
For IT teaching:
  • An RSA Advanced Diploma (Royal Society of Arts)
  • ECDL
  • FirstClass Client Administrator - for online conferencing/teaching software.

By the way, I have been CRB checked in recent times, for local authority and college work.
