Staff Profile: Bradley Finan

Finan Brad Staff

Year 5 Class Teacher

Brad’s background was originally in Criminology and Sociology where he gained a BA Hons degree at Manchester Metropolitan University. In his early career, he spent 2 years working in children’s homes and 7 years working as a Youth Offending Officer for Rochdale Youth Offending Team. Both of these roles involved working with children, families, schools and a range of other agencies to prevent offending behaviour and re-integrate children back into the education system. 

After becoming involved in charity work for ‘The Shamwari Project’, a local charity offering English lessons to refugees in the UK, Brad decided to pursue education as a full time career. He studied at the University of Sunderland and completed his PGCE. Brad joined NAIS in 2010 and has thoroughly enjoyed becoming immersed in the NAIS community, working alongside wonderful teachers, students and parents. He considers Shanghai as home and looks forward to continuing his journey at NAIS Pudong well into the future.

In his spare time, Brad enjoys going to the gym, socialising with friends and spending time with his family. He is a keen traveller and has already explored many parts of South East Asia. Over the coming years, Brad is excited to watch his young family grow and experience all of the wonders that Shanghai and China has to offer!
