For students who may not previously have had been successful in traditional academic studies, Gavin says “I left school at 16, without any formal qualifications that were appealing to employers, so after a succesful apprenticeship in the building industry, I started my own companies – first in the building industry then in retail and wholesale, and then finally when I turned 30 in the health care industry.”
Because of the issue that many health care professionals face, a lack of business skills, Gavin built and delivered extensive business training and mentorship for all students, based on his own experience and what he had proved had worked within real clinics.
In 2017, Gavin took CHEK Academy global with online learning, and has updated all online content for the Academy during 2020. The Academy student intake has doubled in size every year since 2018.
Since then, Gavin and the CHEK Institute Team have successfully launched the CHEKIVA free platform, built the first CHEK Media Film Studios in the UK, and opened the CHEK approved E-commerce store in 2020.
Gavin is passionate about the vision and values of the CHEK Institute and all of it’s practitioners and is a shining example of a successful health entrepreneur.
