Personal profile

My job mainly entails supporting teaching staff in the fields of course management, exam processing, administration of tailored courses and the Language Centre English Test. I like being able to relieve language teachers of as much work as possible so that they can concentrate on their main tasks. I also enjoy thinking about how work processes can be improved.

I have a wide international network thanks to my hobby: dog sports. We take our dogs to competitions not only in the Netherlands but in Belgium, Denmark and Sweden too, so I’ve met a lot of people with different backgrounds and nationalities. Speaking the same language means you’re able to share knowledge, build up new social contacts and enrich your experience. I find that very enjoyable, and also very important. There are so many nationalities, so many different insights and so incredibly much that we can all learn from each other!
The Language Centre is an inspiring environment with lots of nationalities and challenging work.
