I have a masters degree in chemistry, a post graduate certificate in education (UK level 7 qualification), and I hold qualified teacher status from the UK Department of Education. I currently work within the emergency services environment. I am part of an emergency scientific response team providing 24/7 support to the emergency services for chemical, biological and radiological incidents. I am also part of a training team who provide technical scientific training to the emergency services.
WordPress Origin Story
I hold the equivalence to the current UK level 7 learning and development qualification and I have worked as a learning and development professional throughout my career. I saw a job working with the Automattic learning and development team and starting digging into what they did and what WordPress was. I didn’t get the job but I could see how my skills in could help the training team so I stuck around. I am not a programmer and I often wonder what I have gotten myself into but I am learning a lot about WordPress while checking lesson plans for spelling, punctuation and gammer.
