Craig giving his presentation

Executive Head provides guidance to future PE teachers

PGCE and School Direct physical education trainee teachers were provided with valuable professional advice when executive Head Teacher of Gildredge House School, Craig Bull, spoke to them about securing their first teaching position.

Craig is an alumni member of the University of Brighton and studied a BA in Physical Education with Qualified Teacher Status 20 years ago. Craig has previously been a teacher of physical education, a deputy principal and a head teacher at a British International School in Singapore.

The seminar covered application processes, writing a supporting statement, researching the school, interview techniques and other professionally relevant factors.

PGCE and School Direct PE route leader, Dr Gary Stidder said: “I remember teaching Craig as an undergraduate student and recall that he was a very focussed student. Having an experienced head teacher such as Craig speaking to our trainee teachers was extremely insightful but also very inspiring.

“The fact that Craig is also a former physical education teacher helped to contextualise much of the information he was able to provide our students with respect to working within the contemporary education system and securing their first physical education teaching post.”
