Simon Docherty

Instructor Academy Manager

Simon manages the Academy instructor team and looks after all issues relating to training delivered through the Academy. As well as his management responsibilities, Simon also delivers training for the Academy. With 20 years’ experience with RTITB, Simon is a passionate instructor who brings a wealth of knowledge to his training.

In his spare time Simon is a keen gym-goer and he enjoys spending time with his family. Beyond that, not much is known about Simon - he is an enigma wrapped in a mystery, swallowed by a particularly hungry sphinx.
