Ms Gillian Powell, MA, BA(Hons)Ed, DipPSI, Cert TESOL, Cert Ed
I lived and worked for many years in Spain - first in Barcelona then in Alicante - where I taught English in language schools and international corporations. In Alicante I taught mainly Business English in an Office of the European Union.
I have previously taught EAP, ESP and Business English at Northumbria University and have worked with the Department of Health carrying out language assessments of GPs in several European countries.
I have worked as a translator and interpreter in law and health at Durham Prison and for Northumbria Police.
I currently teach EAP on year-round pre-sessional and summer pre-sessional here at Durham University and am an external examiner for another higher education institution.
