ABOUT

PALMINA LA ROSA

I’ve been involved in teacher training and education for 25 years.

I founded Giga International House in 1997 and, in January 2021, CTD – Coaching Training and Development, a division of Giga IH. CTD aims at providing language teachers with useful coaching techniques to support their students in practising the 21st century skills.

I have always invested my time in both my personal and professional training, especially in leadership and management, attending coaching courses and seminars.

I became a qualified Coach, approved by ICF, International Coaching Federation, in 2018.

In 2020 I attended the High Impact Leadership Course, held at the University of Cambridge Institute of Sustainability Leadership.

I believe that professional development and improvement are the basis on which my career is founded and, as a result, I am an ICF and an IATEFL LAMSIG member.

I believe in coaching and in its power to enhance and improve professional skills, including those of language teachers.

I’ve been AISLi Director of Operations from 2005 to 2016 and AISLi President from 2016 to 2020 (The Italian Association of Language Schools).

Giga International House is an authorised Cambridge Assessment English Exam Centre, offering all range of exams and CELTA courses. The school is also a British Council IELTS venue.
