Richard Allsop

Born in Chesterfield and educated at St Mary’s school, I left school at 16 without any qualifications and started a career as a bricklayer in the building trade, eventually running my own business.In 1996 I had a serious car accident that took me over a year to recover from and realised that I needed a change in career. I enrolled on a course at Chesterfield College, gained A levels in maths and English and a HND in Business Information Technology, followed by a teaching qualification. My experiences give me a unique understanding of how difficult learning can be later in life.
