Chris Webster

Chris is a current PGCE student at UCL Institute of Education, having lived and worked in China for over five years.

Chris spent his first two years in China teaching English as a Foreign Language, where he was able to use his experience and expertise to tailor engaging and inspiring lessons that meet the needs of non-native learners.

His experience of working in a Chinese emigration firm also helped him to develop his cross-cultural communication skills which were vital in carrying out successful business deals.

Chris is back in the UK to help inspire the young leaders of tomorrow to utilise their language knowledge, to build a brighter future for both themselves and the nation.
