Technician, Ross Thompson, who first came to Brooke Weston as a student is leaving for (literally) pastures new. Ross is taking over as head of the audio visual department at Moulton College in Northampton and he's set to film in-depth animal operations and veterinary techniques for training purposes.
Ross, who started here as a Sixth Form media student, has clocked up over ten years as audio visual technician, trouble shooting, installing and operating equipment and helping staff and students to use our range of audio visual facilities effectively.
'The new role will be very similar to what I'm doing here,' he said, 'but they have got cameras to record the details of operations and things like that. They want me to create DVDs of these so students at universities all around the country can study them.'
Ross is looking forward to the challenge of doing something new but will still keep in touch … 'I've made so many friends at Brooke Weston over the years so I'll still keep in contact.' he said.
