Monday, 14th September 2009
Cactus is pleased to announce the appointment of Rod Mitchell as its new Academic Director of Studies.
Rod comes to Cactus after being the director of The English Studio in Pistoia, Tuscany. Previously he was the Director of Studies of Berlitz Brighton, and before held various Assistant Director of Studies and Senior Teacher roles in EFL schools in Australia, as well as other university and adult education teaching and language research roles.
Rod hails from Queensland, Australia but has also lived at various times in the UK, Australia, France and Italy.
“I have always been very interested in language learning and teaching as part of the whole human experience. I enjoy learning about others and understanding how we can live, work and play together whilst also appreciating our differences,” comments Rod. “An organisation such as Cactus is at the cutting edge of this, and I am very much looking forward to working as part of the team to help keep Cactus on its track to being a world leader in language teaching and learning services provision.”
