Founder and CEO | Lingotot
Angela Sterling este fondator si CEO Lingotot. Fost profesor de limbi straine in Anglia, Scotia, Paris si Dubai, a fost responsabilă pentru scrierea unor programe inovatoare de invățare a 3 limbi straine (franceza, gemana si araba), pentru copii cu vârste cuprinse între 3 și 11 ani.
De-a lungul carierei sale, a fost implicata in proiectul de cercetare: “Learning French from Ages 5, 7 and 11 – An Investigation into Starting Ages, Rates and Routes of Learning, Amongst Early Foreign Language Learners” in cadrul Newcastle University. Acesta a fost momentul in care Angela s-a decis sa deschida prima locatie Lingotot, iar BBC a transmis prima sa lectie. Aventura antreprenoriala a Angelei continua cu anul 2011 cand deschide prima locatie in franciza, iar in 2016 reuseseste si certificarea metodei proprii de predare Lingotot.
Din 2017, Angela devine presedinte regional pentru EWIF (incurajarea femeilor pentru a investi in franciza). Astazi, reteaua Lingotot are 53 de parteneri francizati in Marea Britanie.
Ambitia Angelei este sa devina un brand global si sa extinda metoda sa de predare la nivel international. In Romania, este in cautarea unui partener masterfrancizat, preocupat de dezvoltarea unui business in zona de educatie, pasionat de copii si dezvoltarea lor si gata sa se afilieze unei retele care a dezvoltat o metoda de business dovedita: pe baza unei metode proprii de predare, bazata pe invatarea prin joc, joaca, povesti, teatru, cantec si interpretare (adaptata grupelor de varsta), Ligotot ofera cursuri de invatare limbi straine (araba, engleza, franceza, germana, italiana, mandarina, spaniola, galeza) copiilor cu varste sub 1 an si pana la 11 ani.

Angela Sterling is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Lingotot International and Lingotot Ltd in the UK.
A former language teacher, Angela has taught in public and private schools in England, Scotland, Paris and Dubai. As Head of Primary Languages, she was responsible for writing
comprehensive and innovative language learning programs for children aged 3-11 in 3 languages: French, German & Arabic. In addition to this, she led the teacher improvement program for language teachers.
In 2009 three of Angela’s students ranked in the top ten in the world for their GCSEs (UK examinations are taken at aged 16). Later that year Angela began working with Newcastle University on their key research project; “Learning French from ages 5, 7 and 11: An Investigation into Starting Ages, Rates and Routes of Learning Amongst Early Foreign Language Learners.”
It was at this time that Angela founded Lingotot, starting as a sole trader operation. The business generated great interest right from the outset with the BBC broadcasting the first-ever Lingotot lesson.
Angela welcomed her first pilot franchisees in December 2011 and the business has gone from strength to strength, winning a number of prestigious awards and accolades along the way. In 2016 Angela formalized the Lingotot Method by creating language qualifications for children, accredited by NCFE, an OfQual regulated awarding body in England. These qualifications are unique to Lingotot and a first for the UK. Keen to further improve teaching standards, Angela went on to create the only teaching qualifications for language teachers at Early Years and Primary levels. These are accredited by NCFE and Cache.
After seeing the huge positive impact franchising has had for her own, mostly female, franchisees, Angela is a huge advocate for franchising as a great option for women and in 2017 she became Regional Chair for EWIF (Encouraging Women into Franchising).
The Lingotot network currently has 53 franchises in the UK, employing further 70+ languages teachers.
