Pen Portrait Madeleine du Vivier
I have been involved in English Language Teaching for forty years as a teacher, teacher trainer, academic manager and materials writer. I run pre- and in-service teacher education programmes with teachers based in the UK and from around the world and am also responsible for the tutor observation programme at University College London. I also work for an examination board as an assessor and moderator of a post-graduate teacher training programme. I was a governor at St Mark’s Church of England Primary School in Islington for three years and am particularly interested in teaching and learning at primary education, with a specific focus on literacy.
