Rebecca Barker

2019/20 Fellow

With 5 years of experience as an educator, Rebecca has worked in schools across the world teaching humanities and pioneering charity initiatives amongst students. Having completed her PGCE as part of Teach First, an organisation with a mission to end educational inequality, Rebecca has always been driven to fight for a fair and enriching education for young people. It is her energy and desire to understand the issues which permeate the education sector which led her to complete a master’s in Education and Leadership at University College London later that year.

Over the past two years, Rebecca has taken her profession abroad; she has spent this time working in Thailand which has afforded her with the opportunity to pursue passions such as scuba diving, hiking and yoga.
