The NML SCITT team
We have a dedicated team ready to support you throughout your application and your course.
Katrin Sredzki-Seamer, Director
German is my native language and, having successfully completed my MA in Interpreting and Translation in English, Spanish and Russian, I moved to University of Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English, followed by a PGCE MFL Secondary in German and Spanish (University of Nottingham). I remained in England and my career as a language teacher began.
I have worked at Silverdale School since 2002 and became Head of German in 2004 progressing to become Head of Languages in 2007. I am enjoying making a contribution to teacher supply as the Director for the National Modern Languages SCITT.
Christophe Fico, Course Leader
I am a French national with over 20 years’ experience of teaching MFL in the northwest of England. I have taught a range of languages (French, Spanish and German) in both the state and independent sectors.
I have joined the NML SCITT from Bolton School Girls’ Division where I was the Head of French and the Bolton Hub NML SCITT Subject Lead. Previous to this post, I was a Senior Subject Teacher for MFL in a school based in Cheshire, where I also held a pastoral role. I am a Senior Examiner for a leading awarding body.
I am passionate about both languages and teaching, and love travelling and discovering new culture. A keen tennis player, I enjoy using my language skills on a tennis court by taking part in tournaments across the world (including Spain and Germany).
Louise Allsop, National Modern Languages (NML) SCITT Administrator
Over the past 10 years I have worked in a variety of roles and have developed my skills as an administrator. I take pride that I am a self-motivated and enthusiastic person who works well as part of a team and independently. I am here to help and will happily answer any questions or queries you may have about the course.
Sarah Fidler, South Yorkshire Teaching Hub Office Manager
I work for the South Yorkshire Teaching Hub which is the umbrella organisation that includes NML SCITT and the Sheffield Teacher Training Alliance (STTA). I have an overview of everything related to the South Yorkshire Teaching Hub and I am here to help with any NML SCITT enquires.
Claire Clayton, South Yorkshire Teaching Hub, Finance Manager
Like Sarah, I also work for the South Yorkshire Teaching Hub. As Finance Manager my responsibilities are to provide efficient finance support to guarantee the smooth running of the hub including NML SCITT. I have made efficiencies to policies and procedures which have benefited the hub allowing the team to concentrate on operational business and supporting the trainees on the road to becoming a teacher.
