Stefan Todorov


Head of Swimming

Mr. Todorov holds Bachelor Degree in Sports cCaching and PE specialising in swimming from the National Sport Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria. Mr. Todorov has lived and worked in Abu Dhabi for the past 12 years, and prior to moving to UAE, he was a swimming development officer for the City of Glasgow Swim Team in UK. 

Following a competitive career as a swimmer, I decided to continue to be involved in swimming and pursued several qualifications in coaching and teaching. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Sports coaching and PE specialising in swimming from the National Sport Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria. 

As a swimmer I represented my country in several international championships, with the highlights being the World championships in 1999 and Junior Olympics in 1998. Unfortunately, I felt short of qualifying for the 2000 Olympic Games. Following that I joined University, and decided to focus on education and stopped swimming competitively. 

From 2004 to 2008 I worked in the UK and was part of Glasgow swim team as an age group coach, and swimming development officer for Glasgow. During my time there I had the privilege to work with many up and coming young swimmers, with some of them representing and winning medals for Team GB at a later age.  

My wife and I always wanted to combine working, travelling, and experiencing different cultures. An opportunity came for us to move to Abu Dhabi and in 2008 we relocated. Before joining BIS Abu Dhabi I worked at another private school as a lead swimming teacher. I have also been involved in establishing some additional sport projects to provide opportunities for young people to develop as athletes and outstanding individuals. 

I am delighted to be part of Team Falcon and looking forward to coaching, guiding and mentoring all the students at BIS Abu Dhabi.
