Assessment support manager at Cambridge
Assessment English

& Managing Editor - IELTS at Cambridge University Press

When I returned to the UK I went on to work for Cambridge Assessment English. I no longer taught exam courses but now I was involved in the whole production process that goes into writing those exams. Project management, test-writing, editing, proofing, pretesting… the job taught me all these things and so, so much more.

Working at Cambridge University Press in-house taught me the importance of processes, workflows, budgets and the high-stakes, high-pressure of producing quality materials on time.

My 17-year teaching and examining career overseas and my in-house experience are the foundation on which my consultancy services are based.
