Staff Spotlight: David & Lyn Scott

Staff Spotlight: David & Lyn Scott

ELC first opened its doors in September 2003, making this our 15th year of operation. In the lead up to this celebration, we would like to cast the spotlight on some of our longstanding staff members who have played a key role in making ELC the distinguished college it is today.

David and Lyn Scott are the owners, founders and directors of ELC.

Originally from the UK, David has lived in Australia since the age of 11. Lyn grew up in England and came here at 21 as an English teacher! David and Lyn have been teaching, managing schools and training teachers for almost 30 years in more than ten countries between them. They both hold Master’s degrees in Language and Linguistics as well as the Cambridge Diploma in English Language Teaching.

When they first opened ELC in 2003, they took on most of the roles at school themselves. Since then the school has grown from 5 classrooms to 23 and over 40 staff but David and Lyn are still involved in the day to day operations of ELC. David works as the managing director and Lyn oversees the academic management of the school. They are excited to see the school reach the milestone of 15 years and are looking forward to the future of ELC.
