Wayne Stevens Graduated from DeMontfort University Leicester with a BA Hons in Design Management and after a substantial time working in the Graphic, Print and Product design industry completed his PGCE at the University of Cambridge.
It was whilst he was the Studio Manager for a Graphics Company, that he noticed the positive response he got when interacting with the pupils with the software, hardware and image manipulation and enthusing them about creative design that he first considered becoming a teacher.
Wayne has taught for seven years at a school in Suffolk during which time he had become 2nd in the DT department. He started two new after school clubs; 3D Print club and F1 in Schools, aimed at introducing younger pupils to the world of Design Technology, and had been instrumental in increasing numbers on their GCSE and A-Level courses. Wayne organised and ran regular trips for his A-Level groups to shows and exhibitions to further their knowledge of DT outside of the classroom,and is passionate about the vital role Design Technology can play in solving problems. He is a Bronze and Silver assessor for the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.
Wayne enjoys outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, camping and mountain climbing as well as listening to music, and he has even spent six months instructing groups on wilderness survival.
He particularly enjoys his role as an Archery GB instructor as participants can show improvement in a relatively short period of time.
