Alex joined Cardiff Sixth Form College in September 2015. Alex is an astronomer with published research and an engineer with a successful stint in the publishing and automotive industry. He has taught exclusively in sixth form colleges in South Wales and has experience with most examination boards’ specifications. Alex had an international education and as such has a good understanding of learning in a foreign language. Alex wants Physics to be the centre of our students’ education about nature and our world, and the means to appreciate and love our planet. Alex’s vision for the Physics Department is to be the vehicle for students to develop critical thinking and become inquisitive, curious and perceptive. Alex puts a strong emphasis on computer aptitude as well as communication skills, oral, written and through digital media, skills that our students will acquire through Physics, in preparation for university and their professional careers.
