Careers Talks

Our Inspirational Colleagues

Depending on which talk you attend, you'll hear from some of these inspirational professionals!

Giovanni (Italy) “Before becoming a TEFL teacher in 2006 I was a theatre actor and director - something I can still do alongside my teaching career. I've lived and worked in the USA and Italy, passing through Indonesia, Cambodia, and Thailand on the way.”

Teodora (Romania) "I started teaching in 2010 at IH Bucharest. First adults, then I specialised in children's classes, and now I’m a teacher trainer developing the next generation of teachers."

Rachel (UK) “I’ve been a TEFL teacher since 2005, and have also worked for an international development charity. Now I’m based in the UK."

Ben (Vietnam) “After completing my CELTA in 2012, I became an ESL Teacher, then Academic Manager at a language school and now Recruitment Manager, working in the UK, Thailand and now Vietnam."

Orlando (Mexico) “Having taken different Cambridge English teaching qualifications has allowed me to teach TEFL at all levels, and work in different and varied contexts. My passion is teacher development and I’ve worked with TEFL teachers in Latin America, Canada, the US, the UK, Tunisia,  Ukraine, and Italy, and assessed CELTA courses in many more places!”

Simon (China)  "I ‘accidentally’ became an EFL teacher when I was 23 and remain in the industry 26 years later!  I’ve worked on a wide variety of different courses in places as varied as Thailand, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Newcastle in the UK, but nowadays I spend most of my time focused on English teaching in China.”

Diana (Portugal) "After I left university, I spent a couple of years travelling around the Middle East and then did my first TEFL training course in Cairo. I've taught adults and children ever since, and now I train on CELTA courses as well as helping to develop teachers at my own school and state school teachers in my area.'
