​Pete Crowther

I have a lifetime of experience in teaching, teacher training, school inspection and CPD, predominantly in science, in both the UK and overseas (particularly in the Middle East). I have almost 20 years experience in teaching and management in schools and approximately 15 years in teacher training and science lecturing as Head of Science at Bishop Grosseteste University. I have extensive experience of private tuition and examining at all levels up to honours degree level. On completing a 2-year contract as the Science Specialist for the Supreme Education Council in Qatar, I worked as a freelance science education consultant in both the UK and the UAE.

I have had wide and successful leadership experience in education in the UK and overseas, including the UAE and Qatar, predominantly in special needs. I have held the UK National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) since 2006. I completed my training for School Inspection (Ofsted training) with SERCO in 2016, and have been employed as an inspector for evaluations in the Northern Emirates for EDT.


Great trainers, with vast knowledge, very friendly, welcoming and made me feel at ease.

A great course informative and useful in the present situation. Pete and Fran were excellent in their knowledge and support both before and during the course. They responded quickly to queries via email. Brilliant!

The assessors were very helpful and supportive during the course. I would like to thank Fran and Pete for their time and support and helping to ease my nerves on the day of assessment. 

I really enjoyed completing this course and learning something new. Both Fran and Pete were really helpful, supportive and made me feel at ease.
