Paul Graham
Marketing and Media Officer

The main focus of my role is to maintain the Safety First Website and Virtual Learning Environment and to increase the exposure and awareness of what the Community Training Centre offers. Another important focus of my role is event photography for the centre. I also help support learners who are new to I.T. helping them navigate through the Virtual Learning Environment, as well as teaching first steps in I.T.

I have recently gained a Level 3 PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) qualification, and a level 2 IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) qualification.

My other qualifications include BA (hons) in Photography, Video and Digital Imaging, and A levels in I.T. English Literature and English Language. I also have a Level 2 Food Hygiene certificate and a First Aid at Work certificate.

I graduated from university in July 2009, following three years of study. However, I worked part time during this at the Community Training Centre, covering event photography and brochure creation. During my time in Sixth Form, I worked at IKEA, which gave me a good basis for customer service. I've also spent time working with young people on various school holiday activity schemes and workshops.
