British Council, Jordan
Born in South-West England, I spent the first 11 years of life following my father’s job – moving post every 3 years before starting boarding school. After university, I worked as a safari guide in southern Africa before returning to the UK and taking the CELTA. I joined the British Council in 2007 and have worked in a series of Teacher Development focussed roles starting with CELTA and ICELT trainer in Korea for 4 years. This was followed by roles in Malaysia and China working on CPD programmes with Ministry of Education state school English teachers. More recently, in my current role, I have been working with 5 Levant countries to develop our teacher professional development programmes - often remotely - and focussed on conflict/post-conflict contexts.
