Tom Jones

Tom Jones is not a traditional trainer. He champions experimental learning, often using body armour, protective equipment and army uniforms to get over a message. As he points out, many of his 14-16 age group students may not have seen a school classroom for months, so engaging them in learning often requires a different approach.

Tom’s lectures at Cardiff and Vale College are underpinned with trust, equality, humour and careful planning. Four years in the Army Reserves instilled discipline which he takes into the lecture room and 90% of his students’ progress to further learning.

"Education has given me chances I never thought I would have. I want to encourage my learners to have this experience.”
