Thank you Browny

As we wave goodbye to our BTEC Course Coordinator Ian 'Browny' Brown we look back on his influtential impact on our successful BTEC Level 3 Sport. 

Ian has been part of the Rockley team since 2010 and brought a wealth of outdoor educaiton experience with him. But before he came to us Ian was the Head of PE at Bournemouth’s largest school for many years. 

He has been the driving force behind our very successful BTEC Level 3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) course and is a great motivational teacher and is also a force to be reckoned with!

Along with his teaching experience Browny is a qualified RYA Powerboat Instructor and RYA Assistant Dinghy Instructor. A very keen windsurfer but he will only go on the water when “it is blowing old boots” and an enthusiastic snowboarder who has passonately driven the BTEC ski trip each year. 

He has been known to break a few things in his time, including a few hips and even started a BTEC term on crutches. But Ian's contribution to creating the Rockley BTEC has resulted in the success it is today.

The benefits of a school residential trip for teachers and group leaders >

Teachers are amazing! However, with increasing pressures on workload and such a busy job, why take the extra time to organise a school trip? Well, because believe it or not there are many benefits for you, as well as the students. 

Preparing young people for their first residential trip (for the youngsters) >

Every young person is unique - some come across as confident, energetic leaders, whilst others shy away from the limelight to work away in the background. Here at Rockley, we celebrate the achievements of all our students and nurture and mould their skill set. However, no matter how outgoing or confident a young person may be - going on a school trip away from home for the first time, can be scary and daunting which is why we want their first trip away to be a fantastic one! 

We're making waves!
