Phil Kirkland

I have taught English and Drama in Secondary Schools in the UK and abroad for over 20 years.  Whilst abroad I taught Business English in Tokyo, and volunteered in The Philippines (running an Education project) and India (a school building project). I was then seconded to Nottinghamshire Local Authority as an Education Consultant training teachers in Citizenship and Personal Social and Health Education.

During this period, I developed training packages promoting active approaches to learning and teaching. I still teach English part-time, working with young people not able to attend mainstream education owing to anxiety-related issues. Since my recent retirement I volunteer with 2 local charities and of course, continue my involvement with TTCSZ.
