Benjamin Da Silva Grace


Ben’s first interaction with B&FC was as a student in the late 1990s when he attended to re-sit his GCSEs. From there he went on to complete both Intermediate and Advanced NVQs in IT and eventually an HND in Business Information Technology. Ben’s obvious aptitude and passion for IT led to him continuing his studies at UCLAN on a BSc Computing (Forensics). Keen to pass on his knowledge to others, Ben took up a teaching post at B&FC, where he has supported the next generation of IT specialists for more than a decade.
