My name is Dean Routley, and I am the new Head of Business & Enterprise at Safa Community School. I am from Taunton, Somerset in the South West of England. I graduated from Bournemouth University with a BA (Hons) in Leisure Marketing, before completing a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Education at the University of Sunderland.
I have previously taught at schools in Somerset and in Newcastle upon Tyne (England). For the past 4 years I have been working at a British International School in Qatar. I have a strong passion for Business Studies and to inspire young people to reach their full potential. Through the delivery of engaging and challenging lessons, I hope that my students will enjoy and appreciate Business Studies and Enterprise as I do. I am quite a sporty individual; I enjoy football, tennis, running and going to the gym. I also enjoy travelling, seeing different parts of the world and experiencing different cultures. I am excited to be joining the SCS family and to start my new role.
As a teacher for over seven years, I have worked at schools in England and in the Middle East. I have taught across a wide range of curriculum models and examination boards at Key Stage 4 and 5. My previous role was at a British International School in Doha, Qatar, where I was Head of Business & Economics.
