We are delighted to announce the news of a special award presented to Tessa Woodward, who many of our readers will remember as a key member of the teacher training team at Hilderstone for many years. Tessa retired from Hilderstone in 2016 but has remained active in the profession, editing the Teacher Trainer and maintaining her connections with professionals from all over the world.
Tessa attended a ceremony in London on 18th June and was presented with the British Council’s Lifetime Achievement Award for 2018. This is recognition of Tessa’s huge contribution to the profession through her teaching, training of teachers and teacher trainers, writing and publishing activities. At Hilderstone we are especially grateful to her for the years of service that she gave to the College and the work she did with hundreds of course participants. Many will also remember the support she gave to dozens of work colleagues in her capacity as the College’s professional development co-coordinator. All at Hilderstone congratulate her on her fantastic achievement.
