James Wilkins

Curriculum Manager Engineering

After working in engineering education for around 11 years, I have been able to inspire and challenge thousands of young people to strive and then achieve their goals. I think it’s important to see every young person in education as a potential leader of the future.

Personally, I am a creative person who enjoys drawing, painting and writing. Being outside in nature is, in my opinion, the best way to relax. This can be walking or riding my mountain bike.

I look forward to supporting you to achieve your goals while you’re at our college.

Please see below for more information on the the staff from the engineering department.
