Following graduation, Peter worked initially in the EAL sector as a teacher and university lecturer, delivering English language lessons to both children and adults. Peter then moved into primary school education, working with EYFS and Key Stage 1 students at a primary school in Devon. Here Peter was involved in developing a skills based curriculum to support the development of ‘Learning to Learn’ skills, critical thinking skills and emotional resilience.
Following his time in Key Stage 1, Peter moved to Key Stage 2, teaching Year 4 children also in Devon. Here he was instrumental in developing the ICT curriculum as well as outdoor learning across the school.
Peter ‘s next adventure took him to Dover Court’s sister school in Hanoi where he was involved in teaching developing and delivering the ICT curriculum to children across the school, particularly EYFS and Key Stage 1. He spent time developing his passion for Early Years Education, helping to develop an outdoor learning and ICT curriculum in a newly formed Early Years setting.
Peter has a deep seated passion for child led learning, something he developed whilst working in a number of EYFS settings, both in the UK and abroad. He is particularly excited to utilise this experience as he moves back into teaching Early Years.
In his spare time, Peter enjoys developing his personal interests which include photography, cycling, rock climbing and music. He also plays the guitar and is learning to play the piano.
