Meet The Team – Luke

April 6, 2021

In this instalment of our Meet The Team series, we introduce Luke. 

Luke started at Titus in late 2020 as a Delivery Manager. His responsibility at Titus involves working alongside our customers in the creation stage of their platform, ensuring that their Moodle site is built specifically to their brief. He also support customers through Moodle training, making sure all stakeholders are fully skilled up so they can get the most out of their platform when launched. 

Below we sat down with Luke to learn more about his past work experiences, what he enjoys most about working at Titus, and his interests outside of the office.

What are your past work experiences?

I have a background in education, having worked in the Primary and FE sectors. In my most recent role, I was a Deputy Head at a training provider for 16-18 year olds teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) including to refugees and asylum seekers. As part of my Deputy Head role, I designed and delivered the Moodle site. This was something I enjoyed and it’s what brought me to Titus. I’ve worked in a range of schools in Birmingham, Leeds and Bradford, showing me how students learn best both in-person and online.

What attracted you to the role at Titus?

I felt I could use my experience of Moodle to help customers get the most out of their Moodle. Using Moodle in previous roles and developing it for a FE college really enhanced my love of e-learning. The team has a great working relationship and I really enjoy being a part of that.

What are you looking forward to about the new role?

I really enjoy helping customers design engaging content with Moodle and supporting them with tweaks and changes they want to make. The role is wide-ranging but this is something I most enjoy.

Your top 3 favourite Podcasts/Books?

  1. The Square Ball – A podcast about Leeds United
  2. The Talking Type One Podcast – A podcast about Type One Diabetes – my son is Type One and I was a guest on the podcast, discussing the changes to our lives day by day.
  3. The Lord of the Rings – I love both the films and the books

What are your interests outside of the office?

I love football and have an interest in a wide variety of sports. My other main interests are live music and theatre. I frequently take part in charity events, from sponsored walks to raising money and I have supported charities such as JDRF UK (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and Alzheimer’s Research UK. I am currently sponsoring a child in Kenya through Open Arms International. I’m also a Dementia Friend and aware of how to support those living with Dementia.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be?

Definitely coding.
