    At the early age of 14, Craig knew he wanted to follow a path in the teaching profession and to help inspire others, just as his PE teacher helped to inspire him whilst at school. After his A-levels he studied a four-year BA (Hons) Degree in Physical Education with Qualified Teacher Status at the University of Brighton.  Craig taught in the UK for 10 years before deciding to teach abroad. It had long been his ambition to travel and teach and, when an opportunity to work in Shanghai, he leapt at the chance. NAIS Pudong is his first international post.
