Aberystwyth and Greenwich University graduate, and keen traveller, Ben Harris, 23, has joined the Gad’s team as a trainee Geography teacher.

With a wealth of travel experience, Ben who has lived much of his life in Nepal with his Army family, is studying for QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in Geography but will also offer support in PE and our Combined Cadet Force.

Rochester-based Ben has played football, cricket and rugby at county-level and was also a member of his British international school’s CCF band, playing bagpipes and saxophone.

Lead Trainer, Director of Studies, Mrs Stephanie Burke, said:  “Ben brings a wealth of knowledge and imaginative ideas with him.

“By attending regular off-site workshops and lectures, he is able to share new resources.  All teachers are life-long learners and the Gad’s team has embraced Ben’s fresh perspective, which works well alongside our own professional development training programme.”
