Suzanne Sparrow Language School


Marketing & communications manager for Suzanne Sparrow International Language School, I project managed the build of the school’s website, all digital marketing activity and all activity programming at the school, which involved working closely with local service providers, developing social and activity programmes for students. I developed programmes with providers that include Everyone Active (Sports and Leisure Management Ltd) and the award-winning Exim Dance Company.

I was also responsible for developing markets across EMEA and the Asia Pacific regions, which included managing a wide network of international education agents. I was also responsible for new business development, meeting and working collaboratively with education agents in their native countries. 

In 2017 I was appointed as a member of the school’s senior management team, primarily appointed in order to project manage a business development strategy for the school, helping to build on the strong foundations of a school that has been established for 40 years.

During my time with the school, I am proud to have been instrumental in facilitating an arrangement between the school and the charity RefuAid. RefuAid’s 'Language Gateway' project increases access to English language tuition for people who have claimed asylum in the UK. Ultimately we provided free language tuition and accommodation for refugees.

“Shayne came to work for the language school on a short term basis and we were very happy when this turned into a longer term agreement. He enabled me to see the potential of the digital world and as importantly explain it to me in such a way that I could understand. For those who know me they will realise  the difficulty of that achievement. The work he carried out for the school was of the highest standard and I would be very happy to use his services again in the future.”
