Welcome to my page, my name is Alex Watson and I am the Managing Director of enriched.it
I formed this company for a few reasons, the main one being that I wanted to work in schools and use IT to make lessons as engaging as possible whilst teaching the children new skills. I also wanted to offer an opportunity for young adults to begin their career in teaching in a unique environment.
The company has grown from strength to strength and I couldn’t be happier with the way things have progressed since the company started.
On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my family and going out to nice restaurants or entertaining at home. I am a UEFA football coach and a lifelong Everton FC fan. I also enjoy golf, tennis and many other sports. Thank you for reading my profile.
Hey ya’ll, my name is Ollie! So, where to start? During my younger days, I swam for City of Peterborough Swimming Club (COPS) for around 9 years. In this time I become a club captain and represented Peterborough in individual county competitions and national level team competitions. I worked my way through school knowing that when I left school all I wanted to was be a chef. I pursued this career path for a number of years, going to college and competing in competitions to test my skills. However, when I felt it was time to get a job in the catering business, harsh realities set in and it didn’t go as well as I had hoped for a number of different reasons. So, what happened next?
I went back to college in the summer of 2011 and embarked on a 2 year software development course. On this course I met Jared, a fellow employee here at enriched.it. During this course, I learnt how to make websites, code simple computer games, design computer graphics & animations, just to name a few of the skills I learnt during the 2 years. I left the course with top marks in July 2013 and promptly started work at enriched.it 3 days after finishing college. No rest for the wicked aye!
I thoroughly enjoy my job and I get up every morning knowing that I’m going to do something different (early mornings are no stranger to me from my swimming days!). I like to keep fit in my spare time by running and going to the gym. I also play video games in my spare time and enjoy watching American TV shows when I get the opportunity (Game of Thrones is a favourite).
That’s a little bit about me!
Hey it’s Jared! I’ve worked here at enriched.it since July 1st 2013, and I came straight out of college. I always wanted to be a teacher, but was tired of education and wanted to start making mucho dinero. But I ended up working here instead. I have a rather large family, working with children was bound to happen, I spend most of the time dealing with my family.
I always enjoyed working with technology as I grew up, taking things apart and finding out how they worked. My natural curiosity culminated in me doing A levels in maths and the three sciences. After 9 months of tears, wine and hair pulling I did a level 3 BTEC in software development, covering a wide base of software, hardware, and programming, and given the wide application for these skills, I decided that this was the direction I wanted my career to head in, and voila, here I am.
Hey there, I’m David, David Fisher, and I joined enriched.it in October of 2013. I came straight from Secondary school after completing Sixth Form at which point I was unsure of what I wanted to do. While looking for a job I came across one that included IT, which I really enjoy working and playing around with, and teaching at the same time which sounded really interesting and really challenging to me.
I am a very keen hockey player, I train and play the sport to keep myself fit and healthy while the game helps me to improve myself all the time. I play at a high level while enjoying it at the same time, as I believe you should never take anything too seriously, and you need to find enjoyment in everything you do.
I am a very young 40 something mother of two, who has found herself really enjoying the challenges that working at enriched.it brings. I have a degree in Business Management and have spent the majority of my working life in the engineering industry, but readily admit I was a bit of a technophobe before joining this company– well why bother learning how to use technology when you have two boys who seem to be born with the knowledge? Yet here I am coding, programming robots, editing films, creating my own apps and even sending a teddy bear 37km into space! So if I can do that – just imagine what you or your children could do…
Hey, My name is Jasmine, I am 18 years old. I have recently joined enriched after completing 2 years of A-Levels at Lincoln Minster School. I left school undecided on what I wanted to do with my life, then I discovered this opportunity working with enriched.it and I knew it was something that would suit me. I think that it will encourage me to become more confident doing something that I will enjoy. I have always wanted to do something that evolves helping people to learn new skills in a fun and innovative way. I think that this job will be self rewarding when I see that the students are improving and that we are doing everything we can to help them. I see myself as someone that works well in a team and is always looking to improve where ever possible.
Hello! My name is Gemma Fitzjohn, I am seventeen years old and have recently joined the enriched.it staff. After completing my GCSE’s at Bourne Academy I went on to sixth form to study English literature, Physical education and Business studies. During sixth form I quickly realised it just wasn’t for me but continued through the first year to achieve my AS levels. Having felt I had more skills to offer to a working environment I began looking for an apprenticeship. Once discovering enriched.it I knew straight away that is was perfectly suited to my personality and interests.
I am a very active person with a love for all sports. I am currently involved in a football team at Riverside ladies F.C, and have been playing football for over 10 years now and still very much enjoying it. I love spending time with my friends and family as I am very much a people person.
So that’s a bit about myself! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, I am very much looking forward to my future working with the enriched.it team and meeting some amazing people on the way.
