Melanie Butler asks Andrew Freeman, Trinity College London director of Europe, about his professional background, the impact of Brexit and his plans for Trinity’s suite of exams
Your professional experience is in publishing, particularly educational publishing. Now you are director of Europe for exam board Trinity College London, responsible for ELT both for students and teacher trainees, as well as music and drama. As I understand it, your interest in these areas and your passion for travelling comes from your family. Your father taught EFL?
Yes, my father did teach EFL but quite late in life. He was actually a vicar while I was growing up, but he and my mother had lived abroad doing missionary work and have lots of tales to tell of this. He then taught English for a time in various places, including quite a long period in Turkey.
