Managing Director – Andrew Cushing
Andrew first discovered the power of computers as a learning tool when completing his Master of Philosophy degree at the University of Cambridge in 1987 (he bought an Apple Mac!). Later, as Director of Physical Education and Sport at Hurstpierpoint College, he was introduced to multimedia software by the Head of Computing as it first began to emerge through Apple Computers and realised its potential for creating learning resources. By the time Andrew returned from a period as National Coach to the Portuguese Rugby Federation in 1994 he had written the content of his first resource and established Tacklesport that year; Animated Skill Drills for Rugby Coaching was published in 1995. Andrew has a passion for sport and sports coaching and has used this to good effect in his 16 years running Tacklesport. He is an RFU Course Trainer, delivers workshops at conferences throughout the world and has, for example, been invited to places as far afield as Macau and New Zealand. He has two daughters to light up his life and lighten his wallet!
