Alan and Lewis are qualified PE teachers. They have worked in UK-based and British International Schools for a combined 33 years and pride themselves on supporting staff and students to reflect, innovate and improve.
Having grown up in working-class towns in South Yorkshire (UK), Alan and Lewis first met at Old Hall Comprehensive School in Rotherham. Alan was taking his first tentative steps into a teaching career whilst Lewis was completing his GCSEs!
After several years of teaching in the UK, their relationship went from teacher: student to colleagues and friends at British School Manila. There, they spent 7 years together leading PE and Sport whilst working with some fantastic colleagues on the evolution of PE.
Having written unique concept-based curriculums, developed inclusive sports programmes
and led teams worldwide, Alan and Lewis decided to create 'The Infinite Learners'; a brand that reflects their love of learning and the infinite vision they passionately work towards - to support people working in the education sector and beyond, to be better educators and be better humans.
The world is evolving quickly, and as educators, we must be willing to learn how we can best support students and colleagues for a future we cannot see nor predict.
Our mission at The infinite Learners is to support colleagues worldwide by sharing research, thoughts and opinion on the evolution of education.
We aim to help people in all education sectors reflect, innovate, be brave and be better.
