On graduating, he gained a place on the highly competitive Teach First training programme. Between university and Teach First, he worked at The Economist Intelligence Unit for a year, where he enjoyed putting his economics knowledge into practice.

Sam started his teaching career in South Yorkshire, where he found his passion in helping pupils realise their true potential.
