I was born and bred in Wales, so my introduction to the English language came initially via television and later books; I’m still very much interested in both and my favourite writers include Robert Holmes, Iain Banks, Alan Moore and Douglas Adams. I also enjoy writing, cycling, Polish winters, Doctor Who - in all its many forms - and attempting to outwit my pet Alsatian. I play guitar less often than I used to, which seems to please those who know me best, and computer games if I find the time.
Highest Quality Learning
Highest Quality Learning means doing even better next time. It’s about the individual and not the statistics, about the potential for personal development that that can only be meaningfully measured in retrospect. It’s also, of course, about passing exams.
