A New Face at EC Cambridge

On Monday the 6th of January, EC Cambridge invited a new member to our team! Simon Holmes has taken over as the Director of Studies at EC Cambridge.

Simon, over to you….


My name’s Simon Holmes and I have been working in the EFL sector for the last 18 years. I spent my first seven years as an EFL teacher in Turkey and then joined the British Council in 2003. Since then I have worked in Colombia, Vietnam, Malaysia and most recently in Saudi Arabia. I have held a variety of positions including IELTS coordinator, Young Learner manager, Corporate courses manager and Academic manager roles. I have recently moved back to the UK and am enjoying settling here. I’m also really enjoying my new role with EC English in Cambridge.

I have been married for the last nine years and now have a beautiful six month old daughter who takes up most of my free time. I enjoy reading, computers, travel and good food.
