Julie Carle (Fawcett)

1970 to 1973

Julie left school at the end of Form 6 after gaining University Entrance.  She went straight to Commercial Secondary Teacher’s College in Auckland and completed the three year training course before venturing into the classroom as a very young teacher.  Her entire life now has been involved with training institutions and administration.

Julie’s husband Jim had many overseas postings as a member of the United Nations and Julie set up training schools and workshops wherever they went.   They have lived and worked in Vanuatu (7 years), Vietnam (2.5 years), Singapore (2 years) and Rome (11 years).  She has a very lengthy resume of her work history.

From teaching Commercial subjects, Julie then went on to be a Legal Secretary, Tertiary Teacher, Commercial School Owner, Software Support Specialist, Private IT Trainer, International Consultant, Communications Officer and Web Master, Networking Administrator and Co-ordinator, eLearning Advisor and Company Director.  While in employment Julie graduated in 2011 with a Master of Arts in Online and Distance Education from the Open University in the UK.

As a family they have travelled extensively and seen many parts of the world – South East Asia, South Pacific, South America, North Asia, Middle East, USA and Canada, Europe, United Kingdom and Africa.  Now in their semi-retirement they aim to enjoy the great walks of New Zealand.  Back in NZ Julie is seeking eLearning Consultancies and husband Jim has reactivated his international consulting business.

As well as living and working overseas she and Jim have brought up two sons who have had the benefit of living in many different cultures.  Jamie, now 30, lives in Darwin and is working in the Oil and Gas Industry as an Environmental Engineer.  He is married with a nine month old daughter.  Barrack 28, lives at Mount Maunganui with his partner and is a Roading Technician running a soil sampling lab for Fulton and Hogan.

Julie, like all the Fawcett family, was particularly sporty and played in the A Netball team and also danced in the school musical production West Side Story.

Brother Kit was an All Black, sister Sandra played volleyball for New Zealand.  Her mother still lives on the farm in Walton and Julie is a great support for Betty.
