Susan Young, Press Relations Manager

Susan writes anything that needs writing for English UK, ranging from marketing materials, newsletter stories and the website through press releases and news to student profiles and event reports.

She is keen to hear from member centres with an interesting story to tell, or who would be interested in suggesting students to feature in our regular profile interviews - email her, or find her at English UK events. She also interviews partner agencies, writes a weekly simplified news round-up for EL students, and covers English UK conferences.

Susan combines work for English UK with being a freelance education journalist. Since graduating from York University, her career in journalism and the media has included working for national newspapers including The Observer, The Guardian and the Daily Express and organisations including non-departmental government bodies and the National Association of Head Teachers. She spent more than a decade on the Times Educational Supplement, where she was an assistant editor.
