Passionate about foreign languages

and supporting primary schools


I am an experienced primary school teacher and was the Primary Languages Consultant for Rochdale for 6 years before launching my independent language consultancy in 2011, followed by the Odette Hunt Network and PQ France Ltd in 2013.
I am passionate about second language learning and my main area of expertise is Primary French and Spanish. Making language learning accessible and enjoyable for all is a key driver of my work and I have spearheaded many innovative ideas to develop the skills and confidence of primary school staff to teach foreign languages.
Other accomplishments in the field of Primary Languages include being a:
• Leader in Primary Languages for CiLT
• regional assessor for the National Primary Languages Quality Mark for Herts for Learning
• tutor for MFL content of ITT at both the Universities of Manchester and Cumbria and for Schools Direct ITT in Calderstone and Bolton
• an ambassador for 5-a-day Fitness
• presenter at international, regional and local primary languages events
• provider of primary languages Subject Leader network meetings for Stockport LA

Through my own local primary languages network, I now work closely with schools from all over the North West providing support, advice, bespoke training, practical classroom-based activities and in-class support.

In 2013, I established PQ France Ltd with my husband, Martin, to offer immersion courses in Carcassonne, France. These courses are fully funded through the Erasmus+ grants programme.
