Nick's fields of expertise over the last ten years have ranged from freelance translation, event management to education. He has been teaching French and Italian (from KS3 to KS5) and German (KS3) in secondary schools, over the last 9 years. The common denominator is his strong passion for languages, combined with a serious and on-going commitment to maintain a high level of proficiency in Italian (his mother tongue), English, French and German.
His strengths stem from working with these languages in various professional contexts, alongside making languages a considerable part of his life and personal interests. Born, bred (and educated) in Italy, he continued his further studies and spent most of his professional life in the UK, dealing with the French and German languages on a daily basis.
He received his PGCE in MFL at the University of Cumbria in 2011, and has worked in three different schools since then, teaching Italian, French and German. He now works as a teacher, tutor and freelance translator.
Nicola qualified to teach French in 2011, and holds a PGCE from University of Cumbria.
