Dennis Bland retires
It really is the end of an era at CCAD Middlesbrough, Dennis Bland, Lord Commander of the library, has retired after fifteen years loyal service to the college.
Dennis started in November 2002 as a Learning Resources Assistant and Tech Demo, he has also taught things such as basic skills and contextual Studies; because Dennis has probably forgotten more than the average person will learn in a lifetime. He has a phenomenal thirst for learning and absorbing in as much information as he can find.
His time in the merchant navy and working for Vickers, which is now known as BAE Systems in Barrow, provided Dennis with the opportunity to travel immensely, which in turn provided him with the most amazing stories to tell during break times from the library.
A phenomenal source of information, continually wanting to learn and help people has seen Dennis working as Learning Resources and Progression Advisor for the past couple of years.
A forever friend of the college and everyone who visited the library. He will be massively missed by staff and students alike.
