Ian Carey

Senior Lecturer

Department: Social Sciences

I have been at Northumbria University since January 2012. Initially, I was programme leader for one of the University’s pre-sessional courses for International students looking to increase their English language ability before entering their undergraduate degree programme. Since 2014 I have been coordinator for in-sessional support programmes (Academic language Skills) for international students in the Faculty of Business and Law.

Before Joining Northumbria University I was In-sessional Programme Manager for INTO Newcastle University and before that I worked for Newcastle City Council in the ESOL service, teaching English language to refugees, asylum seekers, migrant workers and other non-native speakers resident in the North East. I also taught English in Japan for twelve years prior to returning to the UK in 2006
