Stephen Preece


Founder of e5-portfolio

BA Hons; PGCE, MSc.,



Stephen is highly qualified and has oceans of experience when it comes to mentoring the next generation of creative learners. He is passionate about his role and he believes that no two learners learn in the same manner. He has therefore designed a programme which provides each member with the tools that they need to develop their own authentic portfolio. Stephen is of the opinion that the well being of student should go hand in hand with the quality of the portfolio.
