Biography

Mr Mark Breslin is a lecturer in Physical Education, Health and Well-Being at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. He has an extensive sports coaching background across many sporting domains from grass roots to elite top professional clubs and athletes which spans back over 30 years.

He has personally competed at international and professional level in the sport of boxing representing his country Scotland as a top amateur on numerous occasions before turning professional in his field.

He retired from professional boxing, undefeated through injury and turned his passion for sport and exercise into the science and art of teaching. He has taught Physical Education and Sport & Exercise Science for over 20 years across all spheres of education from early level through to higher education in both England and Scotland. He has had many promoted roles in pastoral care, gifted and talented pupils and coordinated many courses in his years of working within education.

He was recently seconded to Education Scotland as a Physical Education Lead Officer where he worked across many schools, building the confidence and content of teachers’ ability to deliver high quality PE for pupils implementing many of the Curriculum for Excellence policies.
