Phoenix School of Languages was founded by Katie Cox.
“My mission is to create an outstanding language school in order to promote education and training in the local community by helping our clients communicate, whatever the language, whatever their needs.
I have 15 years experience in teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and 3 years of course management.
I have a degree in Linguistics, Edexcel Level 5 BTEC Certificate in FE Teaching, Cambridge L4 CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and am a registered teacher with the Institute for Learning. I have undertaken continuous professional and personal development, including a Diploma in Computer Applications, ECDL, Key Skills Level 3, Microsoft Office Specialist and Level 5 Award in Developing Embedded Approaches in Literacy, Language and Numeracy for teachers in the Lifelong Learning sector.”
I have always had an interest in languages and communication, and completed my BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy in 2008. I am a registered Speech and Language Therapist and Signalong tutor and have been practicing in the Yeovil area for many years. I believe that the ability to express yourself and understand others is of paramount importance to enable independence, wellbeing, civil rights, and the ability to make informed choices. I gained my Cambridge English Level 5 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA Pass Grade A) at the University of Gloucestershire, and have been working with the Phoenix School of Languages since 2019.
