Meet Chester Whitwell

HEAD OF FACULTY - GRAPHIC AND WEB, WELLINGTON

Chester gained his Diploma of Computer Graphic Design with us back in 2003 and a couple of years later was approached by his former tutor to teach the diploma programme at Yoobee Wellington. Now he manages the Diploma of Computer Graphic Design course across all three Yoobee campuses.

Chester has Certificates in Adult Education and Training, and Adult and Continuing Education and Teaching and gains immense satisfaction from helping his students achieve their goals. Passionate about design, education and technology, he gets excited when new technology emerges, especially when it allows him to explore new techniques he can use in the classroom.

So Chester, what might someone be surprised to know about you?

“I work as a wedding photographer, shooting about seven weddings a season. I also collect obsolete technology, like cameras, handheld devices and old gaming machines. Basically anything that once had a place in our lives but is no longer relevant due to advancements in technology.”
