Len Peters

Head of Counselling


Len joined UWC Thailand for the first time in 2009 when the school was Phuket International Academy. He returned in 2014 as the first school counsellor when the school had just started the IB Diploma Programme. His previous experience working in education includes public schools in the United States and international schools in the United Kingdom and India. He has a BA degree in Chemistry and an M.Ed. in School Counselling and has worked in international education for over 20 years. He strongly feels the comprehensive school counselling model, where the counsellor supports the student’s well-being and mental health, and helps to ensure their post-secondary education pathways are the best fit for each student at UWC Thailand. Len is an avid cyclist and loves to spend time in nature, either camping or taking walks. He feels the connection with nature is a vital support for well-being and sustaining a meaningful life. Len is joined by his wife, Pla who works in the Primary School as a Learning Support Assistant.
