Kerry Nockolds

Director of Educational Services, Taipei European School

台北歐洲學校教務長

 

Kerry, originally from London, has been based in Taiwan for over 20 years, having always been involved in education and learning during this time.   

With a love of teaching and a lifetime love of learning, he has attained a Degree in Economics, a Degree in Chinese, a Dip TESOL Level 7 Licentiate Diploma, and is also a Certified Oxford Teacher's Academy trainer from his time working for Oxford University Press.  Leadership and mentor roles have been important in his career in the positions of Principal and then Managing Director at Shane English Schools Taiwan, and also in his present post as Director of Educational Services at the prestigious Taipei European School.

His other main passion in his life, apart from his family, is golf. He is able to combine his love of playing and teaching, by having qualified as a USGTF certified professional golf coach and share his knowledge and passion for the game with his students.  A lot can be learnt about your emotional intelligence from how you manage yourself on a golf course! Kerry and his daughter have a YouTube channel "Learn golf with Cassie" that shows the struggles of learning and improving at something that is not easy. 

Kerry loves to work with The School of Life, as the challenges faced by us all keep changing and the traditional educational approach does not cater for these real-life issues/struggles/complexities in a focused way, and so the assistance of thinking about life in ways that we don't usually consider, offers us more options on how we conduct our lives.
