Accelerating and supporting learning among students to develop excelling minds that push the boundaries of education.
Our brand values are at the core of everything we do at iGCSEprep. They are the principles that shape how we support our students, treat people, and perform our roles.
Understanding: We begin by presuming the goodwill of others.
Curiosity: We demonstrate the power of learning by learning. We’re interested and inquisitive, looking beyond what is to what could be.
Ingenuity: We imagine, create, devise and design. We do what it takes to meet the needs of those we serve.
Ownership: We're accountable for all that we do. We step up and seek responsibility. We own our work and earn our results.
Commitment: We persevere till the end.
Wartenberg’s journey all started at Rhodes University in South Africa, where he graduated with distinction in BScHons and Masters in Ichthyology and Fisheries Science from 2006 to 2011. He went further to complete his Doctor in Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) at City University of Hong Kong from 2015 to 2018, focusing on developing the first IMTA systems for the South China Sea fish raft aquaculture industry.
During his studies he has been affiliated with world-class industries developing and implementing production systems that improve the economic, social and environmental sustainability of aquaculture. This includes becoming a Project Coordinator for Sustainable Seas Trust, Commercial Diver (Class IV) Marine Science (P/T) for the National Research Foundation and South African Environmental Observation Network (SAEON), Curriculum Development Manager and Head of Science at Kajonkiet International School, Aaprendre Idiomes, Brandon Learning Centre, Environmental Science Teacher at City University of Hong Kong and Aquaculture Senior Research Associate at State Key Laboratory of Marine Pollution, University of Hong Kong.
Dr Wartenberg is not only determined to develop sustainable food production methods within our oceans but he is also deeply passionate about accelerating and supporting learning beyond the classroom, giving students the skills to excel in their studies with current certified tools and experienced teachers that push the boundaries of education, and so with this in mind iGCSEprep was established.
