Thomas McCabe

Head of EAL

BA, M.Ed.

I graduated with a BA (International) in French and Irish from Dublin City University in Ireland. During my studies I had the opportunity to enter the Erasmus programme studying for one year at The University of Lorraine in France where I gained a greater understanding and appreciation for French Language and Culture. Following this, I completed a 2-year Master of Education at Trinity College Dublin. During this time, I gained valuable teaching experience working as a supply teacher in many reputable primary and secondary schools across the country.

Having completed my postgraduate course, I moved to Scotland where I lived and worked within Glasgow city. I facilitated and supported students with SEN and EAL. I taught a range of subjects to students including French, English and Health & Wellbeing. Following this, I returned to Ireland and began working within a secondary school in South Dublin where I taught languages.

I’m now going into my third-year teaching EAL at Britannica and my second year as Head of Department. My aim is to provide a stimulating and focused learning environment for students, where the subject is interesting, learning is enjoyable, and students of all English proficiencies can succeed and experience success.
