    BA (Hons), PGCSE

    Having achieved a BA Honours in English and History at Manchester Metropolitan University, Michael embarked upon a career in teaching and in 2006, completed his Postgraduate Certificate in Education, in London. He then taught Year 3 and Year 5 classes there before deciding to apply his love for teaching in an international setting. 
    This led to Michael taking on a role as a Year 4 teacher in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. After two years in Vietnam, Michael returned to London for a further year. In 2012, he took up a role as a Year 3 teacher in an international school in Dubai. After a year, he was appointed Head of Year 2 where he developed his practice further for four years, in addition to becoming the school’s Teaching and Learning Coordinator. Following this, Michael was promoted to Phase Leader of Years 5 and 6, where he was able to share his passion for child-centred learning on a larger scale. After seven happy years at the school, Michael decided to apply his teaching in another setting in Dubai and moved to another international school where he taught a Year 6 cohort. Following eight years in Dubai, Michael and his family made the decision to apply for a role in Shanghai, and he was attracted to BISS following glowing recommendations from others within the Nord Anglia family and the shared ethos about teaching and learning. After a year at the school, Michael attained the role of PSHE & Student Leadership Lead and is excited about the opportunity to help nurture the wellbeing of the Primary students, develop the PSHE curriculum even further and work alongside the Student Council.
