Steve was a very creative and inspiring colleague who made his mark in many areas of the languages community.
In recent years he had been focusing on support for primary education, having collaborated in the development of the Catherine Cheater Scheme of Work, remaining in close touch with national developments until the very end.
After a distinguished career in modern languages, as a teacher, head of department, Local Authority Adviser/Inspector, initial teacher educator and consultant for CILT, the National Centre for Languages and the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, Steve retired in September 2011.
It is typical of Steve that, to mark his retirement, he chose to walk the Camino in Spain, in order to raise money for breast cancer care at St James’s Hospital, Leeds. www.justgiving.com/steve-haworth
Steve was a long-standing member of the National Association of Language Advisers, and will be especially missed by NALA B, although he was also widely known and very popular with NALA members and teachers across the country.
Steve was not only a brilliant linguist, author and trainer, but was deeply respected by his colleagues and friends, who will remember his kindness, his loyalty and generosity of spirit, his warmth and irrepressible sense of humour.
We send our deepest sympathy to his wife, Anne and to his family and friends at this very sad time.
