I'm happy to have started at Languages Training and Development, in the wonderful town of Witney, Oxfordshire. (In my photo I am walking my dog in Cornbury Park, in the nearby countryside... I feel very lucky).
I have been involved in EFL since doing my CELTA in 2009 (at the English Language Centre, now BSC, in York). Once qualifying, I moved out to the beautiful island of Sardinia, where I remained for 8 years. While I was out in Italy, I did my DELTA at the Cambridge School in Verona.
Towards the end of my stay in Italy, I started a small language academy, and also did my CELTA Trainer in Training.
After leaving Italy, I moved to the vibrant seaside town of Brighton, UK. There I became Academic Manager of Brighton Language College, before moving onto to become Director of Studies for Sprachcaffe's Summer Program in the city. These two jobs really helped me determine what is necessary to lead a team of teachers, and helped me look at Teacher and Career Development a lot more closely.
When I heard about the job at Languages Training and Development, I jumped at the chance. I love my job. Everyday provides a new challenge. I am the marketing and sales manager, as well as course Trainer on the Dip TESOL program.
I'm excited about the next 12 months, and the new possibilities they will bring.
Nice to meet you :)
