Caroline Bristow — Project Manager 

Caroline BristowCaroline took over the management of CSCP in February 2017. Previous to this she was the Classics and Religious Studies Subject Specialist at the exam board OCR, where she led on the creation of new qualifications. and worked with the Department for Education and Ofqual to develop subject specific guidelines and regulations. She also oversaw the production of supporting resources, handled publisher relationships, and devised and led the CPD for her subjects.

Caroline has taught a variety of subjects in the state sector at GCSE, AS and A Level, including Classical Civilisation, Classical Greek, Religious Studies, Philosophy and Anthropology. She also has experience teaching for the IB, as an EPQ Coordinator, and as an A Level examiner for AQA Classical Civilisation. Each summer she teaches on the JSST Repton Summer School, to get a small 'fix' of classroom time. 

She has been involved in outreach work, especially in terms of access to Classics and to Higher Education, since her time as an undergraduate and then postgraduate student at Oxford University, and is delighted to have the opportunity to continue this work at CSCP.

Verity Walden — Latin Learning Manager 

Verity WaldenVerity has been working at CSCP for ten years teaching Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation to students, both in schools and individually, via video conference and as one of our Distance Learning Tutors. She writes and produces our Distance Learning courses for the various available qualifications, provides teacher training at CSCP events, and offers in school support when its requested. With her extensive experience and MA in Education from the Open University, she acts as a source of wisdom and expertise for the whole office and any teachers who contact her.

Before joining CSCP Verity spent four decades teaching in state and private schools in Wales, England, and Malawi (!) In addition to Classics, she has taught many other subjects; in particular English and Drama, but also others such as History and Geography. Verity has also examined for GCSE Latin and Greek for various boards, taught adult evening classes in Latin, and taught by video confernece for Moorhouse Black (Nelson Thornes). She maintains that her best job however was cleaning the latrines in a kibbutz in Israel!  

For the past two years she has spent a portion of her spare time digging at Vindolanda, an experience she highly recommends.

 

Elizabeth Mozzillo-Howell — Distance Learning Manager

Elizabeth Mozilla-HowellElizabeth has been with us at CSCP for about 10 years as Distance Learning Manager. Her role involves helping people who would like to learn Latin, providing information on our courses and advising them on the right course for their needs.  Likewise for teachers who would like to start up Latin classes at their school. She manages the wonderful tutors who work with us, and really appreciates the opportunity to work with such dedicated Classics teachers. Should you 'phone her, you’ll hear an American accent  - or something like one! She's a transplanted New Yorker who has lived in England for over 20 years.

Whilst Elizabeth is actually an Italianist with a specialization in medieval literature, her interest in the Classics started in her teenage years when she first studied Latin at university. She considers herself very fortunate to be able to combine her two interests in both her academic life and her role at CSCP.

 

Ian Colvin — Development & Webmaster

Ian ColvinIan has worked at CSCP since 2005, and currently helps with all aspects of technical development, website and digital activities.

He is a Byzantinist and Late Roman historian, specialising in the Eastern Frontier and the South Caucasus. In addition to his work at CSCP, Ian runs a longstanding archaeological dig at Nokalakevi in the Republic of Georgia in partnership with the Georgian National Museum and the University of Winchester. Nokalakevi is a long period site, which corresponds to the Archaeopolis of Late Roman sources and is sometimes also identified as Aia, the capital of King Aeetes’ Colchis during the heroic age.

When not in the office he can occasionally be found guide lecturing on archaeological and cultural tours of Georgia and Armenia.

 

Tim Waghorn — Project Assistant

BregansTim has worked at CSCP for the last couple of years, in a variety of areas. These including helping develop various websites, such as romansinfocus.com, and a range of activites (both digital and print). He edits a fair chunk of the audio associated with the Cambridge Latin Course and, when feeling especially theatrical, is the one reading the Latin too. He is usually the person behind the CSCP twitter account, @Caecilius_CLC.

His undergraduate studies particularly focused on aspects of Roman satire and Classical Greek philosophy, and he now presents a radio show which has nothing to do with either.

 

Andrew Kightley — Project Secretary and Publications Manager

Andrew KightleyAndrew started working for CSCP in the summer of 2016 as Project Secretary and Publications Manager. He handles the administration and distribution of all products and services sold by CSCP, and is the first port of call for customers with problems or questions. On top of this he manages the office and keeps the rest of the team organised; no easy task! 

Andrew studied Philosophy at degree level, but was introduced to Classics when he studied Classical Civilisation at A Level. 

When he's not keeping the office running smoothly,  he can be found teaching and dancing with The Cambridge Lindy Hoppers. He does not, however, dance in the office unless provoked.
