When I left school I played professional football in England, Qatar and Iceland . I then joined the Army reserve and I was with the Royal Logistics Corps and Special Air Service over a period of 17 years. I have recently rejoined as a reservist as part of support squadron with the SAS. I have travelled to over 50 countries around the world, and lived and worked in many of them. I am a qualified Master Scuba Diver Training Instructor and love diving both teaching and recreational and have done over 1000 dives, with my favourite destination being the Maldives. I am also a Emergency First Response Instructor and Football Coach.
As a centre manager, I get to use both my military and civilian knowledge and experience towards helping our learners build their future. I love to see their growth and development. It is so rewarding to be part of a great team that helps them achieve their goals.Steve Rutter
