STARTED US


EDUCATION + VOCATION




We ‘raise people up, to strive and elevate their knowledge, fortitude and dreams‘ using accounting. Our process creates Zones of Proximal Development (ZPD) with More Knowledgeable Others (MKOs) for the development of sustainable wealth and capital.

About us tells you how our full time/interim accounting and management services started. We can trace its commercial origins back to the summer of 2017. However the journey that brought us to that point is a far longer one. Our journey started as a thirteen (13) year old masonry apprentice, during school vacations until age nineteen. This was followed by teacher training college at age seventeen (17) earning a teachers diploma, with an elective in Design and Technology at nineteen (19). My first pedagogical classroom practice ended at age twenty-seven (27) to focus on developing all systems, including accounting for my first business.

At age twenty-five (25) I started my first business and learnt how to navigate undercapitalisation, with creative imagination and resilience over fourteen (14) years. At forty (40) I closed my first entrepreneurial chapter and migrated to England. Here I worked in a cabinet factory assembling cabinets, taught in a preparatory school as head of D&T, worked for many businesses in their accounting department, did my MBA at age (50) and continues to study the ACCA to gain deeper insight into the entrepreneurial experience. This cross-sector practice and professional training across business and education has shaped EDVOCAP.

Our cross-sector skillset, in construction, education, manufacturing and accounting, uses technology to make difficult things look easy. I am fun to work with as my design and technology diploma (Dip.Ed) inspired me to become an award-winning entrepreneur.

EDUCATION EXPERIENCE
12 YEARS


Managed a multi-academy finance team of seven. Brought a preparatory school D&T provision into the 21st century

We used Sage 50 Professional | Payroll | Forecasting to design and manage a multi-academy accounting system. As part of this process we trained staff to use the system in six weeks. The data helped us identify a deficit model of funding with the support of auditors. This positioned us to, negotiate a restructure plan with the EFSA that included a monthly reporting schedule.

Prior to this, we led the change process to revamp and modernise LHS [Lochinver House School] Design & Technology programme. Drawing on our previous eight year experience as a design and technology teacher we delivered academic instruction for Design & Technology and ICT. However, to bring the curriculum into the 21st century we introduced CAD/CAM. The children used ProDesktop software for their CNC milling activities.
