Program Director - Languages (National)

"The first job that I ever got was as an English teacher and I have continued to work in the ELICOS industry since 2007. When I got the opportunity to become an Academic Manager very early in my career I leapt at the opportunity. I am really passionate about creating new methods of interaction and learning and developing a more holistic approach to teaching. I always try to understand the student’s point of view by putting myself in their shoes and try to create teaching methods and courses that appeal to them. I believe that a great teacher can change the life of a student. I am so happy to be surrounded by so many wonderful teachers at English Unlimited giving students the experience of a lifetime."

"Hello, my name is Jack and I was born and bred here in Australia. After finishing school, I studied and completed a Bachelor of Teaching and taught in Primary schools around the Brisbane area for 2 years. Although I was born in Australia, I have been fortunate enough to travel to a few different countries in my young life including Thailand, America and New Zealand. Traveling and seeing different cultures is a passion of mine, so surrounding myself with students who have experienced a completely different lifestyle to my own is very exciting. I love working at EU because it combines both my passions of helping students and learning about different cultures and experiences. I look forward to meeting you all on campus and getting to know you. "

"Hey! I am Pablo and I am from Chile. I came to Australia in 2017 planning to stay for a few months and then go back and finish my career in teaching. (Eu/APC was my first school here in Melbourne). My plans to return to Chile changed when I fell in love Australia. I have learnt new skills and, after 5 years, I'm back on track working on my teaching studies. I am passionate about learning about different cultures and at EU I am exposed to many different students from many different backgrounds. I am happy to be a part of the 'EU family' especially because I now have the chance to help international students, make them feel welcome, and ensure they are not alone on this journey. It also helps that I get to learn and grow in my role along with them."

Academic Manager (Melbourne)

"My name is Nikki and I am a kiwi who has lived in Melbourne on and off for almost 10 years! I started teaching ESL in South Korea, studied and taught in Vietnam and eventually returned to Melbourne to teach here. I have worked for APC / English Unlimited for about five years now. You'll often hear me saying "teaching doesn't feel like work," and that's because I really have found my passion here in ELICOS! I have a degree in Theatre and Classical History, but after graduating I found that I really loved travelling the world and wondered how I could make it a career. I got to meet a wide range of absolutely fascinating people and hear their stories. I now love facilitating learning in a multi-cultural classroom - I can help students achieve their language goals and experience "travel" everyday!"
