A married college chief who boasted 'I'm an awesome sh*g' faces being struck off from working in education over 'unwelcome sexual contact' with female colleagues.

Stuart Tandy, 42, was described as a 'Jack-the-lad' - but a series of women workers complained over his sexual antics at further education college.

And he is facing being banned from working after a disciplinary hearing ruled his actions were 'sexually motivated' - and not just banter.

Mr Tandy forced a woman colleague to dance with him at the college Christmas party and grinded against her saying: 'You're making me hard'.

College manager Mr Tandy also made a foul-mouthed speech at the festive bash in a pub where he told his shocked staff: 'Cindy likes c**k'.

Presenting officer Cadi Dewi said: 'He was described as a Jack-the-lad who used sexualised language and innuendo the work place.

'He asked one colleague if she had a quickie with her husband before coming to work and asked others if they were having an affair.'

The hearing was told Mr Tandy - who held a £36,000 management role - also boasted to staff: 'I am an awesome shag - my wife told me.'

Mr Tandy faced a series of complaints over his behaviour while manager at Torfaen Training, a council-run further education centre in Cwmbran, South Wales, including 'unwelcome sexual contact' with women.

Miss Dewi said: 'While attending the Torfaen Training Christmas party Mr Tandy forced colleague E to dance when she did not want to then forced his groin into her and told her 'you're making me hard' or words to that effect.'

Another colleague, known as person B, said Mr Tandy smacked her bottom on a night out to celebrate another worker's 40th birthday.

She said: 'I was talking to a colleague and I felt someone smack my bottom. I did not see who it was but I was told it was Stuart Tandy.

'He whispered in my ear: 'Are you wearing underwear because that felt like skin on skin?'

The woman - who said Mr Tandy's wife was also at the party - complained to college bosses the following week and Mr Tandy was suspended.

The Education Workforce Council heard 'bullying' Mr Tandy created 'a climate of fear' by shouting and swearing at fellow workers in meetings and 'demanding respect'.

Miss Dewi said Mr Tandy told colleagues their ideas were 'a crock of s***' and said 'they could f*** off elsewhere.'

Mr Tandy, who did not attend the hearing, admitted smacking the woman's bottom and swearing at staff members but denied being sexually motivated or that his actions amounted to unacceptable professional conduct.

He denied all allegations in relation to dancing with the woman at the Christmas party.

In a statement he said: 'I deny that there where any sexually motivated actions from myself towards any member of staff and am horrified at the thought that any actions were in pursuit of sexual gratification or a future sexual relationship.

'I am a happy married man of 18 years with two children. I am overarchingly a good natured person who would help anyone. I venomously deny the allegations against me.'

Mr Tandy said he had 'made mistakes along the way' but had 'acted professionally' for the majority of his employment.

The panel ruled his behaviour was sexually motivated and amounted to unacceptable professional conduct.

The panel said: 'Mr Tandy behaved in a manner that was inappropriate and unacceptable and his actions fell short of the standard expected of a registered person.'

Mr Tandy, of Brynmawr, South Wales, faces being struck from the Educational Workforce Council register when the panel reconvenes to gives its ruling on sanctions againt him.
