Stuart joined the 1st Battalion the Royal Welch Fusiliers in 1994 and over his 24 year career, Stuart progressed from a Fusilier (Private soldier) to a WO2 (Warrant Officer).
Throughout Stuart's career he had an active role on multiple operational tours to Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan plus numerous overseas exercises to Canada, the Falkland Islands, Kenya and Oman.
A large part of Stuart's career was in the reconnaissance platoon commanding teams on operations in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan. Stuart completed various tactical, vocational and instructional roles and courses within the armed forces including light role and armoured reconnaissance, sniper, tracking and ground sign awareness, jungle warfare, map reading, advanced surveillance and weapon systems.
He has been able to pass his knowledge and skills onto others through several teaching specific postings including ITC Catterick and the Operational Training and Advisory Group (now MTMC) where he was responsible for the training and development of operations, tactics and procedures for operations in Afghanistan, Sierra Leone and Cyprus.
Stuart is really looking forward to using his teaching skills and experience to inspire the students of MPCT and help them to achieve their goals.
Russell Joined the Royal Marines at the age of 22. Serving ten years and completing two tours of Iraq and a tour of Afghanistan, Russell was lucky enough to experience training all over the world, his favourite place being the arctic of Norway!
After leaving the Marines, Russell went into the Maritime Security sector and completed two years looking out for Captain Jack Sparrow and his motley crew. Whilst home on leave, Russell was working for a company delivering employability courses through Job Centre Plus. As much as he loved the sun and views in and around the Indian Ocean, Russell found he had a passion for helping people to progress in their lives.
Russell moved on to a more permanent role working with 16-24 year olds who were suffering with anxiety and depression and just didn’t fit with mainstream education (through no fault of their own). Russell really enjoyed working 1:1 with these youngsters and seeing them change and progress over his time with them was really fulfilling.
Russell saw that MPCT were coming to Plymouth and knew he had to apply!
