I qualified as a teacher in the early 1970s and taught in London secondary schools for nearly ten years. I then moved overseas, working with schools, universities, military training colleges and vocational training providers, in both the public and private sectors. I took a British M.Sc. in the mid-1980s, a US Doctorate in the early 90s and have presented papers at major international conferences in the UK and Europe, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, the UAE, Oman and Turkey. I am a Fellow of several professional and pedagogical organisations and most recently, became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
I have worked externally for Aston, Leeds and Southampton Universities in the UK, as well as for RAND Education in the USA. I was a senior educational manager for British Aerospace in Dhahran, the Centre for British Teachers in Ibri and Dohar and for the London Chamber of Commerce & Industry in Cyprus, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Among many senior positions, I have acted as the founding Principal of a secondary school in Cyprus and managed the Qatar Skills Academy, a vocational college in the capital. I was Headmaster of KYUEM, Malaysia’s premium 'A' Level College for five years from August, 2013. During my tenure, the success rate of graduating students increased every year, while in 2017, the number of students who obtained places at the University of Cambridge was the highest in the whole of Malaysia.
From the summer of 2018, I am permanently based in southern Cyprus and available for short and medium term consultancies covering a range of professional, managerial and pedagogical areas. I look forward to hearing from anyone who wishes to engage my services.
Many private schools and colleges around the world hire graduates as teachers, hoping they will learn teaching skills on the job. Also, there may be staff in schools who work in administrative, support or advisory capacities and are keen to become teachers. I offer a fully-accredited British teacher training programme via face to face, blended or distance learning. In addition, I can provide short-term, bespoke refresher courses for secondary teachers and heads of department. The handbook shown below is available for further information.
Assistance with UK University Application
As Headmaster of one of the finest pre-university colleges in the world, I frequently advised parents and students on how and where to apply if they wanted a degree from a major UK university. I was also able to advise on application procedures to US, EU, Antipodean, Canadian or Chinese institutions. I now offer that expertise online, via videoconference or face to face if you live in, or are visiting Cyprus. My knowledge and contacts are extensive, detailed and regularly updated. Fees are reasonable and dependent on how much time is required for interview and counselling sessions.
The PREP Placement Test
An online placement test of English language competency is available from this website. It gives a quick and effective assessment of your English language level and is accompanied by a certificate of competency which will be emailed to you by return. The cost is 25 Euros, including certification and can be taken immediately.
English Language Assessment
I am Head of Accreditation for ALAP, a professional British awarding body for English Language training programmes and language schools.
Leadership Programmes for Middle & Senior Managers
As an experienced Head Teacher, senior educational manager and practising teacher, I am able to provide short courses on school management, quality assurance, curriculum development and many other aspects of middle and senior leadership continuous professional development. All my courses are internationally accredited by the CPD Accreditation Group in the UK.
How well is your school performing? Do you employ the right measuring, benchmarking and assessment methodologies to ensure you are maximising your potential? I can provide you with the empirical tools to assess how well you are performing. This is coupled with school inspection visits to give a detailed quality report on strengths and weakness and how to improve your school’s overall effectiveness.
I can provide access to sophisticated online psychometric assessment to be employed in the hiring or promotion of staff. It is a sad fact that these days an interview alone is not sufficient to ensure you have selected the right person for a vacant post. I offer a range of highly professional online psychometric assessment tests which candidates can be given where feedback is provided within minutes of completion. In addition to the full report generated, I provide useful guidance on how best to interpret results ensuring their effective usage.
Testing & Evaluation Systems
As well as my own suite of accredited online tests and programmes, I can provide instruction, insight and advice into the correct teaching of IGCSE and A-level examinations, International Baccalaureate programmes, American SATs and how to use the UCAS university application process in the UK.
If you need help or advice in any of these areas, please contact me at any time for further details.
