Jane Crawshaw Parry | Get English | Severnvale Academy
Jane, Academic Director

"I come from a communications background in both degree and post graduate qualifications. Teaching English as a Foreign Language was a natural progression for me, which led to a DELTA qualification and senior role as Director of Studies. I love exploring how English works and sharing this knowledge. My aim is to make the language as accessible and engaging as possible. 

People often say I was born to teach. I am approachable, with strong interpersonal skills and have a talent for getting the best out of people."

Catherine Jones | Get English | Severnvale Academy
Catherine, Course Director

"I have language degree and a background in business analysis and project management. A human resources role led me into training where I discovered a passion for the classroom. After completing the CELTA qualification, I taught in both the UK and South East Asia. A senior teaching position and subsequent course coordinator role allowed me to combine my teaching and management skills. 

I am a meticulous planner and highly pragmatic in everything I do. As a teacher, I am best described as enthusiastic and encouraging."

"I had the opportunity to work with Catherine and Jane and it was a fantastic experience.
Their combined skills, make the perfect combo.
They are approachable both to students and team leaders. Students turn to them to look for advice of any kind. I could not recommend working with them enough."
