Nicole D’Adamo originally worked in the study abroad sector, organizing student programmes around western and central Europe, particularly in Italy, where she spent much of her childhood and where she completed an Erasmus programme as part of her degree. In 2003, she started teaching British Life and Cultures (BLC) to American University students, focusing on the historical and contemporary relationship between America and Britain. Building on a background in politics, she has taken particular interest and enjoyment from working with American students and indeed completed an MA in United States Studies from the Institute of Americas. Nicole has a Distinction in Professional Certificate for Teaching and Learning at Higher Education from the Institute of Education in London and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Along with BLC, she teaches The History of London and particularly enjoys leading student groups on field trips and imparting an enthusiasm for our culture heritage. She joined FIE in September 2008. Nicole lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire with her husband and two young sons.
