About the trainer
Hello, I'm Francis O'Neill
I work out of Evesham in Worcestershire -
where I have lived for the last fourteen years - and until the end of 2014 provided home-based training for anyone living within a 15 mile radius of Evesham. I now deliver some courses through Evesham College - check out the Coming up page.
I am a qualified teacher with
twenty 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've taught from beginners to the more
Education is emancipation
I'm on a bit of a mission, and have been for many years, to help people lift their IT skills and take full advantage of what Information Technology and being 'online' can offer - not only for shopping and banking but with regards to the knowledge that is available at our finger tips. Anyone who has ever visited Wikipedia will know what I am talking about.
I'm also passionate about 'lifelong-learning,' believing that it is essential we never stop learning and every means be at our disposal to aid us to continue to explore and grow.
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...
- PGCE (Post-Grad., Cert., in Education.)
- City & Guilds teaching certificate
- An RSA Advanced Diploma (Royal Society of Arts)
- The ECDL
By the way, I have a current
DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate - essential for college work.
If you are interested in a course advertised on this site, the proper route is go to the college website to book for it, but you can contact me off the Contact me page if you want to know more or need some advice.
