Further Information (more available if required)
My initial Apprenticeship and Management was in radio, television and electronics from 15 years of age for some 8 years - with Alwyn Isherwood Ltd (Wakefield) - this included a period where I was responsible for the operation of a television crt reconditioning facility in Barnsley.
I retired in 1990, at 50 years of age, as a result of ill health following my divorce after 25 years of marriage. My position at the time was senior lecturer and course tutor (Radio, Television, Electronics & Computing) at Kitson College of Technology (now Leeds City College).
This was following some 34 years of teaching and industrial experience
(including 9 years as a part time tutor in electronics and computing for
the Open University).
I then ran a 'Narrowboat Charter' Business, (Narrowboats 'Oxford Blue' and 'Baby Blue'), at Stanley Ferry near Wakefield for some 5 years.
Present Web Work (Now
but only just learning !)
As webmaster for Blue Water Marina - Thorne near Doncaster - I was responsible for setting up WIFI facilities for boaters using a BT business hub. This facility allowed local and visiting boaters access to the internet for email & web browsing requirements.
