Contacts and useful links

I am a big user of Instagram – lucenuken / LucyOlivia#InternationalSmile <– give me a follow for more photos relevant to my posts!


I am TEFL qualified and am looking to teach abroad in the future if anyone knows any links, contacts, schools feel free to drop me a personal message via Facebook ‘Lucy Oliviaa (InterantionalSmile)’ I am not a degree holder and have very little experience with TEFL though lots of teaching experience in other fields. I hold certificates for 120 hrs online, 30 hrs grammar online, standard classroom and advanced classroom training. I have taught a few times in local schools in Kanchanaburi, Thailand alongside volunteer work which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am looking for a work placement to give me a chance to gain more experience!

You may have read my blogs about my volunteer experience.. I was part of the Big Cat team on a Safari Park in Thailand (November – December 2015). If you have not but think it sounds interesting take a look for yourself’s, here’s a link to the website and some contact information…. I promise you wont regret it!

Or If you are not able to jet away any time soon but could spare a penny or two for these beautiful creatures then please use the contact information to make a donation! Your money goes towards enrichment materials, making the enclosures bigger and much, much more! 

For more information speak to Tat Jones (Head volunteer) her crazy, bubbly personality is far from scary so feel free to ask her any questions.
