helped me through my modern apprenticeship in mechanical engineering in the late 90's. good lecturer & all round top bloke.
When i was studying engineering i belived him to be one of the best teachers and engineers i have ever met. He was also a good friend and would always help you solve a problem in a simple and easy way.
we are so pleased that dave is meeting tony blair and he should be getting a knighthood for his contribution to further & higher education. well done dave!
