I have an MA degree from London Metropolitan University and a PhD from the University of Reading My academic research focuses on the ways in which assessment can support learning in bilingual and second language contexts. I am also a teacher trainer for University of Cambridge CELTA YL international teaching qualification. This is an exciting role which has so far given me the pleasure of training teachers in England, Poland, Ukraine, Czech Republic and Bahrain.
Highest Quality Learning
To me, Highest Quality Learning is the belief that every student can achieve great results. It’s about developing creative and inquisitive young minds that are not afraid to take risks and are equipped with a can-do attitude that helps them keep on trying to complete the task at hand, even if they encounter some obstacles. In practice it means that as teachers we facilitate the learning process by providing conditions in which there is no glass ceiling on our expectations of what the students can achieve. HQL encourages young people to take ownership and responsibility for their learning.
