Carrie McCullock

Principal Lecturer/Teaching Fellow

Department: Social Sciences

Carrie Mcculicock

I have worked at Northumbria University since October 2001. I have taught EAP to a variety of students from many countries on both pre-sessional and in-sessional programmes. I have been the co-ordinator for the pre-sessional Summer School and the university’s in-sessional EAP provision. I was the Programme Director for Languages and successfully led the British Council inspection (November 2012).  From 2013 to September 2015, I was the Director of Placements for the Faculty of Arts Design and Social Sciences working with colleagues to improve the employability of our graduates

In October 2015, I was appointed Head of the Languages Centre managing the university’s English Language provision  and Unilang which is part of our Modern Foreign Languages offer. 

Prior to my work at Northumbria, I lived and worked on the island of Crete where I taught English to children aged 11-18. I also lived and worked in Milan in Italy, where I taught beginners English and business English to adults. 

Before I began teaching I worked as a volunteer for the Iona community in Scotland.

Outside of work, I am a singer-song writer and performer. I am also a member of the Jazz.Coop which was founded in 2014 and is the first of its kind in the UK.
