I'm David Robinson, a teacher, journalist and one time FE Head of Dept. My main subjects are geography and micro-computing.
After teaching in the 11-18 sector I moved on to work with unemployed school leavers and so called 'school failures', whose problems were almost always a consequence of the school and the curriculum/ teaching, rather then inherent in the kids themselves. This included using geography, survivial skills and life skills education to turn around young teenagers who were neither in employment nor training.
In 2005 I left the FE sector and set up as a full time freelance journalist, writing articles, contributing to online resources and providing reviewing/consultation services.
I've been running The Geography Site website for over 10 years, (www.geography-site.co.uk) and find that I can successfully convince myself of the need to travel all over the world, 'for the sake of the website' :-)
