Languages became an inspiration and a fascination for me during my own formative years.
Having completed an RSA Diploma for Languages in International Trade (Distinction) together with the Institute of Linguists Intermediate course, I put the knowledge to work in an international training environment at Unilever PLC in London and later at Crédit Suisse.
After having a family, my focus changed to education and I launched French clubs at several village schools in the Cotswolds. This developed into language lessons in the curriculum. In 2008 I joined Airthrie School to teach Forms Willow to Oak in their language lessons and have since helped to develop the Modern Languages Curriculum throughout the School.
