I have completed two textbooks dealing with Information Technology at Advanced GNVQ level. The first comprises the second edition of a student textbook (de Watteville & Gilbert, 2000) which, in its first edition, apparently was the UK's top seller in its sector according to its publisher, Heinemann. The second is a Tutor Resource File (Gilbert & de Watteville, 2000) to accompany the student textbook, aimed at supporting the tutors who teach the Advanced GNVQ IT programme.
My extra-mural interests include radio-controlled racing yachts. I am collaborating with Graham Bantock on a significant text, provisionally titled "Radio Sailing: Design, Build, Race". Graham is the pre-eminent world authority on such craft, and the text is intended to define the sport and its background theory for the next decade. I have been selected to the Great Britain team at recent World and Continental championships in the IOM and "A" classes.
