A Refugee Week Event organised by ReConnect in partnership with UCL Instituted of Education to support Refugees into Higher Education and Teaching, was held on Wednesday 19 June 2019, 5.00 – 8.00pm at Jeffrey Hall, UCL Institute of Education.

As you asked what impact the teacher training have had in my career, I can reassure you that it was very positive one and definitely helped me to step back onto my teaching path. At the moment I work as Russian Language Teacher at Marden School which gained 100% A* GCSE Russian.
