I had the pleasure of working at RALSS as a casual adult learning tutor for over three years. During this time, I felt welcome from the very start and a part of the team straight away.

I took over the teaching of seven Spanish courses from week one so I attended the site on different days and times, allowing me to meet most members of staff.
Mine was a challenging task that involved long hours of planning and preparation in order to deliver instructive, varied and (hopefully) fun lessons, which I was able to carry out thanks to the constant support and encouragement I received from colleagues to managers at all levels. There was always someone ready to answer my questions, help me find my way around, lend me a hand to organise a classroom or sort the odd software or hardware issue. Someone was always ready to contact a learner, forward materials to or pass on messages from them.

I will greatly miss the RALSS team and the learners I got to know so well as my family and I have taken the hard decision to relocate to a different country.
