Senior Teacher Trainer


BSC Edinburgh


CELTA in 1998, Delta in 2010.
Teaching since 2001.

“CELTA is such a short and intensive course and it can feel a bit of a whirlwind experience, so I am always finding innovative and creative ways to communicate the key ideas, ensuring they are easily retained. Lately I have been studying Experience Design, looking at how to make teaching training a truly positive, memorable and beautiful experience”

Christine Fay

Assistant Director of Studies


BSC Edinburgh



“Our teachers are very dedicated to the students and really care about the students on a personal level. They get to know them and establish a rapport to work with the students to reach whatever their goal is. We have teachers with a varied range of experience who are from different backgrounds and who understand what it’s like to learn a new language.”
