Staff Profile: Victoria Furtado

Victoria Furtado

Head of English as an Additional Language (EAL)

I qualified as a teacher (PGCE) 12 years ago and since that time I have taught History and EAL to students in many different settings. 

I have spent time teaching at schools in the UK as well as Brunei, Norway, Kenya and Japan. I currently teach English to Speakers of Other Languages who live in Devon in the United Kingdom. As part of that role I also provide teacher training for TEFL teachers.

I am married with two young children. We love being outdoors as a family. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, practising taido (Japanese martial art), and trying to improve my linguistic skills. I have been learning Polish for many years and have recently started Russian with my son.  I’m hoping to learn some Mandarin.

what the students say

"You can always talk to Mrs Furtado if you have a problem - she’s really kind."

"She makes us laugh!"
