There are some ‘clear opportunities’.
A lecturer from North West Kent College has strengthened a unique cultural link in Bucharest by making a visit to the city with his wife.
Neil Nixon, who runs the Professional Writing Foundation Degree at the college, worked with his wife, Jane, on November 15 and 16 to deliver a training workshop to psychotherapists in the Romanian capital.
This is the third visit made by the couple and the writing work carried out by Mr Nixon played a large part.
The work has become so successful that the couple have been asked back and also offered a book deal for the east European market.
The 2014 workshop sold out, as did those in the two previous years.
Mr Nixon said: “I am able to take the kind of material I use in Dartford and apply it in ways that help the workshops, the positive atmosphere out there is very strong and we’ve been asked back again, and also offered a book deal for their local market.
“Both offers are really attractive and there are some clear opportunities to build stronger links out there, which could also help my work in the college.”
