My name is Iain. I began working for Headstart International School in August 2022. Prior to qualifying as a teacher, I worked in outdoor education and have worked in UK, France and with Outward Bound in Hong Kong. At this time, I made my only previous trip to Thailand, when I visited Bangkok and travelled to Railay Beach where I enjoyed the fabulous rock climbing and my first experience of scuba diving. On returning from Hong Kong to UK, I began training as a teacher. I have since been employed in a number of schools in Devon and Cornwall in the south-west of UK, and as a school leader of a referral unit for challenging students. After gaining NPQH, I established my own company and worked throughout the UK providing support to local authorities and interim leadership to struggling schools. For the last 7 years I have been employed as a maths and computing teacher and Head of Faculty in a British school in Cyprus. I enjoy teaching students skills that they will use in later life, and also helping them develop into young adults. When I am not teaching, I enjoy music, adventure sports and travelling. My wife and I have travelled through New Zealand and Australia where we gained our diving qualifications. I have also travelled to several countries in Europe, including riding through Turkey to compete in a week-long motorcycle rally in Greece.
