Tim Shanker

British Council & e-Twinning
Ambassador
Oldham UK
Formerly a  secondary school Geography teacher for 25 years - during which time I was the school's international coordinator, organising international days and similar events. I 'Skyped' with classrooms all over the world and  joined the 'Hello Little World' teacher group.

I gained full Fairtrade status for the School whilst there and also the full International Schools Award (ISA) which was a brilliant experience

The pinnacle for me was winning the eTwinning award for Climate Change - and led to me continuing to support and work with The British Council as an Ambassador. I also work for the British Council marking speaking and writing tests for Aptis.

After a change in direction in 2014, I started working for Chess in Schools and Communities, delivering chess in primary schools in deprived areas of the UK. This has been a great hands-on experience as well as fuelling my admiration for a game I have always loved playing!

I also deliver online chess lessons to groups of school children online...strange at first, but another different and rewarding experience - as is teaching English online to adults with the English First group, especially from China and Brazil.
