Teacher Trainers

Aleksandra Zaparucha

I have been involved in Geography and English language teaching for over 30 years, including 20 years of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL). Since 2007 I have been a freelancer, involved in numerous teacher training, train-the-trainer and materials writing projects. My aim is to support EFL and subject teachers and teacher trainers in implementing efficient EFL/CLIL strategies in their everyday practice. My main strength is flexibility in approaching teacher training, train-the-trainer and materials design projects. I am an accomplished teacher, teacher trainer, trainer of teacher trainers, conference speaker, translator and author.
As CLIL Matters I cooperate with a pool of independent CLIL trainers, experienced in working with subject and language teachers alike, from Primary through Secondary to Tertiary level. Our recent engagements include online training delivered to subject teachers and academics in Poland, France and Indonesia.

Krzysztof has cooperated with Aleksandra Zaparucha teaching her courses since the beginning in Albania, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Indonesia, in all their varieties: 5, 7, 10-day versions, to primary, secondary or mixed groups. Typically, the groups were heterogeneous in terms of teachers’ specialisations and professional preparation.
