Jon is the Director of Norwal Limited. He leads the delivery of the company's education & training and occupational water safety courses.

Profile

Jon is an experienced school teacher, senior leader and inspector, who has also worked as a local authority adviser. He has spent the last eleven years running his own education consultancy and training business. Much of this work entails leading whole-school reviews and quality assuring other lead reviewers' reports.

 

His background includes teaching design & technology and mathematics, establishing and running provision for children with special educational needs, and leading inspections of schools in the UK and overseas. He also has experience of inspecting safety critical training and assessment in the rail industry.

Jon has over 25 years experience with the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) and has taught lifesaving, trained lifeguards and coached national standard competitive lifesavers, as well as trained those aspiring to be instructors and trainer-assessors.

 

Until recently, Jon was an operational helmsman at a coastal RNLI lifeboat station, with 12 years of search and rescue experience. During his service, he was awarded the Thanks of the Institution inscribed on Vellum in recognition of his courage, determination and seamanship when he saved the lives of two people, and also their yacht on 4 September 2009. This rescue also earned the crew the Walter and Elizabeth Groombridge Award for the most meritorious service by an Atlantic class lifeboat in that year.
