London meeting

Monday, 21 Mar 2016


UCL in London was the venue for this Licensee meeting for London and the South of England. Over 140 Licensee and Tutors gathered for an action packed agenda.

La Jolie Ronde's General Manager, Steve Baker, opened the meeting and gave a full company update.

Pivotal Education's Barry Stay delivered a session on Safeguarding children - the most important thing for anyone working with children. Licensees and tutors commented how helpful and important this subject was.

Licensee of the Year was presented to Laurence Thonon who teaches French in and around Berkshire. Laurence has been with La Jolie Ronde for over 5 years and with 2 tutors currently teaches 112 pupils per week.

Laurence was chosen because she understands how a La Jolie Ronde lesson works. She is proficient in her teaching ability and obviously enjoys what she does. It is clear that she has a lovely rapport with her pupils and there is an atmosphere of fun learning within a framework of mutual respect. Laurence pupils evidently enjoy their lessons and they feel safe and secure. Laurence is a shining example of what can be achieved as a licensee with La Jolie Ronde.
