Senior Associate for SEN
Having experienced the joy of teaching through voluntary work with children in India and Indonesia, Tom first stepped into the classroom in a small International Academy in Medan, Indonesia, teaching English, Maths and project-based topics for 4 years across Kindergarten and Primary. After a further year of teaching English in Izmir, Turkey, Tom returned to the UK to complete his teacher training and spent two further years as a Year 4 teacher in Surrey.
Drawing upon a passion for student-centred learning, he joined the Skills Builder Partnership in 2016, where he worked with schools across London and the South of England. Tom now leads our work to support students with additional needs, working with teachers and practitioners in specialist and alternative provision and within mainstream settings to build the essential skills of all young people.
