Prof. Keith Darlington

I am a retired university lecturer and author in computing related topics. I was born in Tonyrefail in Wales and obtained a First Class Honours degree in Mathematics from University College Cardiff in 1974. I also have a PhD in AI (Artificial Intelligence) from London South Bank University in 2012 as well as a Diploma in Education in 1977 and other qualifications and society memberships. After graduation, I worked in mathematical modelling with the British Steel Corporation in Cardiff, Wales, and gained experience in computer programming using high level languages. I also worked for ARAMCO in Saudi Arabia in the 1980’s as a Computer Assisted Coordinator in the Training Operations department. This post enabled me to apply IT pedagogic learning support tools on a fairly large scale, and it was during this time that I became familiar with AI. My interest in AI has continued ever since. I began a lecturing post in AI and computing at London South Bank University in 1988 where I worked until retirement in 2011. I have been active through research in this field having published several conference and journal papers. I also take a keen interest in other branches of computing and mathematics and have written a number of books on Web development and Visual Basic for Applications programming as well as expert systems and AI. I continue to write short articles on AI for online technology journals. During my last years at LSBU, I led many semester units related to these topics and was also involved in some course management.

Paul Hooks

I was born in England, and spent my childhood being brought up and educated in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland before moving back to England in the early 1990’s. I have always had an interest in helping others, and this has manifest itself not only in my work as a police officer in the United Kingdom, but also in having a keen interest in passing on my skills through voluntary work, training and education both practically (in the classroom as well as in the outdoor setting) and academically.

My first foray into this arena was in the mid 1990’s where I was trained as a tutor for new police recruits. This then led to me working full-time on a tutoring unit within the police service. Following this I embarked on higher education and in 2006 I graduated from Anglia Ruskin University with an LLB (Hons). During the early 2000’s I had moved in the training environment fulltime and I was responsible for Driver Training and Traffic Law Training where I worked, during this period I was responsible for managing staff and teaching students in both disciplines. My teaching qualifications developed at this time and included Police Trainers Qualification, NVQ A1 Assessors, Speed Laser Trainer, Police Driving Instructors Qualification, I developed a Bespoke Pursuit Management Tactical Advisors Course (which was nationally recognised in the UK). In 2010 I was accepted on to a national fast track promotion scheme, as part of the scheme I completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Leadership and Management with Warwick University. Most recently in 2017 I began my doctoral studies with Anglia Ruskin University through their EdD programme, focusing on the learning and teaching in police officer training.

In 2015 I retired from policing and in 2016 I began lecturing at Anglia Ruskin University, and am currently still working in this capacity. In addition to this I am involved in research with Anglia Ruskin University, looking at the barriers to the recruitment and retention of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Groups in the police service. I also work on a paid and voluntary basis for a number of charities which are Guide Dogs for the Blind, the Wilderness Foundation and Green Path Ventures which are both outdoor organisations working with adults and young people, who are facing mental health challenges in their lives, as well as Hope House which is a homeless charity.

Mr. Sufyan Azmi Alousi
     Regional Operations Manager

An Engineer, a father of two and a husband. A committed to work and highly devoted to any task I am assigned to. This is me in a nutshell. However, I can say that I have ver 25 years of experience as an engineer. Worked as an inspector​ at Power Engineering World in Iraq holding various responsibilities as well as management responsibilities within Quality Assurance Departments and the Quality Control. Working as Inspection engineer at the ​​Ministry of Industry & Minerals in Iraq for eight years has given me a huge amount of not only experience but also knowledge in my field.

Not forgetting experience in dealing with various government departments and management levels. This was indeed the most challenging post I held to that date as it also involved inspection duty on behalf of the government which included QA and QC testing. I later on worked in 2007 at Al-Rush company as an inspection engineer. Also, holding a similar post to the later in 2008 at Al Deqaa Al-Mutanahea also in Iraq. Key responsibilities involved inspection of tank construction and hydrostatic testing with responsibilities in inspection of the power plant. There are many private companies and institutes that I worked for throughout my career, being a freelancer or fixed term including work at Ibn Rushd Public Company in Iraq for eight years were work involved welding and general inspection of pressure vessels and steel fabrication and non-destructive testing (x-ray).

I later on decided that I need to go back to university and study further and complete my education to the highest level that I can within a new field of engineering. So I started at an HNC level and progressed right through to HND. I have recently graduated with a Civil Engineering degree and became a member of the ICE in the UK as part of my CPD. Looking forward to being part of RABG Academy as a Regional Operations Manager for the Middle East region where I will be involved in promoting our courses and encouraging business to be part of RABG Academy.
