“Rachel’s session with our Geography PGCE interns was brilliant, drawing on her deep range of experiences across a variety of school contexts. She communicated a passion for the subject and for inclusion as a higher aim of education, supported through a number of practical strategies. This was captured well in feedback on the session from an intern who described the aim of inclusion being to ‘allow everyone to access and love geography as much as we do’”

Steve Puttick, Associate Professor of Teacher Education, Dept of Education , University of Oxford 

'Just had a fabulous session with Rachel,

Very incisive, supportive, positive and lots of pointers – the right balance of challenge and support.

Apologies this is not a ‘proper’ evaluation but if I were to rate out of 5 – it’s a 5 !

Highly recommended'.

Owain Johns Head Teacher UTC Didcot ( SEND Review) 

'We were delighted with the session Rachel facilitated for us and had a positive response from staff'. Niamh Dolan, Deputy Head Teacher, Blessed George Napier.
