This article centres around my time at Enfield College of Technology. The college was part of the revolution in higher education fostered by members of both the Labour and Conservative parties, and which found expression in the Robbins Committee, set up by Harold Macmillan's government, whose report was published in 1963. A lightly edited version of this article, without photographs, appears as Chapter 5 in the book Enfield Voices: The Birth of the People's Universities, edited by Tom Bourner and Tony Crilly and published in 2018. I am grateful to Tom and Tony, who were both colleagues at Enfield, for the opportunity to tell something of my story. Although certainly not unique, I was unusual in that I was a student on the Mathematics for Business, B.Sc., degree at Enfield College of Technology, and became a lecturer on the same degree the term after graduating. This article tells something of the story of my student life and working life, before, during and after Enfield.
