Following completion of a qualifying law degree Scott embarked upon a career in management, whilst also completing postgraduate study at Cardiff University Law School, specialising in commercial law, intellectual property, alternative dispute resolution and corporate governance.
He has led teams of 150+ staff members and managed budgets, projects and contracts totalling over £50million. After delivering several guest lectures to business students, across a range of areas, he returned to university to complete a PGCE in 2013.
He was granted Qualified Teacher Status in 2014, having completed placements teaching law and business studies in secondary and further education settings. That same year he was appointed as a Lecturer at Swansea University as a subject specialist in organisation studies and has held the positions of Deputy Programme Director and Enhancing Degree Outcomes Programme Lead. He has also supervised around 30 masters research projects to completion.
Outside of the university, Scott has parlayed his experience of management and education as an advisor in both the European Parliament and National Assembly for Wales. In 2019 he completed a period of SRA recognised training and the PSC at BPP. In October 2019 he aims to commence his candidature for a PhD following completion of a 5-year MA(Ed) in Education, Training & Development at Trinity College.
