Senior Education Programme Coordinator
Rebecca is the Senior Education Programme Coordinator at UWC International. Her passion for education started with her service project at UWC Atlantic College (95-97), where she ran outdoor education sessions for school groups who visited the campus. This was followed by a year teaching English in rural Indonesia. Rebecca’s undergraduate was in Anthropology, Spanish and Development and through VSO she worked with a Peruvian anthropologist for a year in the Amazon region, supporting indigenous communities in their relationships with eco-tourism ventures. She completed a Masters’ degree in Leadership for Sustainable Development, culminating in the conclusion that if we want to embed sustainability thinking in society, we need it to be present at the schools. She joined Teach First in its 3rd cohort and taught Citizenship and Sociology in Hackney, London, before joining Teach for All to support the work of Teach for the Philippines. For the past four years she has been the Director of the Primary School at UWC Maastricht, overseeing the development of a primary curriculum that has the UWC mission and values at its heart. Being based at UWC Maastricht allows her to enjoy all the student-led conferences, performances and international cooking sessions!
