Ted Bailey qualified as a teacher and began working in London schools and in the Essex Youth and Adult Service. As a mature student he completed a part-time Master’s degree at the University of London and subsequently became a lecturer in further education colleges. Thereafter, for over 25 years, he trained teachers for the higher education sector and during this time spent a year teaching in California under the UK-USA Fulbright Exchange scheme.

He also completed a Doctorate in the principles and practical applications of analogy in teaching and this research has since been authored as "Aha! Teaching By Analogy" (Trafford Publishing).

The book "A Major Soldier; the military career of Frank Bailey DCM, was brought about by coincidental events which reignited a lifelong interest in history from schooldays.

In tracing his grandfather Frank’s military career the author has uncovered a remarkable military career and also unearthed a hitherto unknown extended family.
