Ian Jennings

After a career as an avionics engineer in the Royal Air Force, followed by a short career break to bring up 2 children, I embarked on a second career in teaching. I am now in my 9th year, my 7th at the Co-operative Academy. I have a HNC in computing, a university degree in computing along with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and a Post Graduate Diploma in Advanced Educational Practice. In addition to being a classroom teacher I have held a number of other posts, including head of Key Stage 3 ICT and Head of Business Studies. Here at the Co-operative Academy I am head of Computer Science and currently also head of Year 10 through maternity cover. I am proud to work at the Co-operative Academy  and play my part in it becoming a centre of educational excellence, where the young people of Tunstall and beyond can attend in the confidence that they will receive all the support, guidance and inspiration that they need to achieve their full potential. Being a teacher governor is a real privilege and I am passionate about being part of a team that continues to deliver sustainable success and year on year improvement. The staff at this Academy work extremely hard to create a safe and inspiring environment and I am grateful for the opportunity to represent the views and ideas of the teaching team.
