About me

Name
Dept
External:

My name is Simon Kelsey and currently I work for an apprenticeship provider in Wolverhampton. Currently I am working with learners following the apprenticeship framework for construction , although I am seeing some learners from the other vocational areas of health and social and business administration.
I have been a qualified tutor in the post 16 sector for the last 11 years where I have taught ESOL, Literacy and latterly, Numeracy. I have worked with both NEETs and adult learners on Jobcentre Plus programmes/Foundation and Pre-Foundation.
I enjoy the rapport I get with the learners in the classroom and use any plausible excuse to do Skills for Life Work outside- especially when the sun is shining! I try to introduce topics in ways that I think will engage learners-particularly younger ones…although I suppose that most tutors do this anyway..
Maths is definitely my weaker subject and for this reason I have chosen to do the focus within this area to “balance” myself out a little..hope this was a wise choice!
In my free time I try to get out and about with my family, especially outside, and, I also try to act as peace envoy between my two daughters!
