Hello! I’m Rachael and I am an Education Outreach Coordinator at York St John University, where I am passionate about supporting young people to explore options for their futures.

In my current position, I am responsible for our team’s work with primary school pupils and care for experienced young people, and I also lead on delivery of Discover YSJ, the year 12 residential summer school. I also attend careers fairs and deliver onsite visits for pupils from all over Yorkshire.

I have had a varied career. I worked previously as a primary school teacher where, as Science Lead, I encouraged all pupils but especially girls, who are still significantly underrepresented in STEM subjects, to pursue their scientific interests. I also hold a PhD in History, specialising in the history of heresy and inquisition in medieval southern France.

I consider education - both teaching and learning - to be a really important part of how I define myself and am a firm subscriber to the philosophy of lifelong learning.
