Hi I am Vijay Degun, from Leeds, England. I graduated from Leeds Business School with BA Honours in Business Studies, and then completed my PGCE in Business Education from Sheffield Hallam University. I am very excited to be joining SCS in September 2022 as Head of Business and Economics in the brand new ‘Hope’ building and contributing to the growth and successes of the department.
I am a Dad of two amazing boys, 2 and 5 years old who take up most of my spare time. I was born and raised in Leeds, but have also lived in Manly, Australia. Together with my wife and eldest son, we moved to Dubai in September 2018, and have not looked back since. Outside of school, my main interests are going to the gym, cycling in the winter, following Leeds United and cooking. I have taken part in school excursions to France, Spain, Japan and Kenya to date and can hopefully add to that list in the future.
Over 8 years’ experience in the UK teaching Business and Economics at both GCSE and A Level. In addition, I have pastoral experience, being a designated child-safeguarding officer as Head of Year. More recently, I have spent the last 4 years teaching International GCSE Business and Economics, BTEC Business and International Baccalaureate Business Management at an Outstanding British Curriculum, International school in Dubai.
