Education Programme Coordinator - Highlands & Islands

Rachael Forbes

I joined the Academy in 2021. I am an artist and passionate engaging adults and young people in creative learning in arts, heritage and college/ university environments. I co-ordinated arts and heritage education programmes and have worked in social enterprise as an art facilitator where I experienced first-hand the hugely positive impact social enterprise can bring.

I work closely with teachers to guide and support them through our programme. I co-ordinate pupil workshops, CPDs and Dragon’s Den and contribute towards showcasing all the school’s amazing work.

I admire the Social Enterprise Academy’s commitment to facilitating empowering, pupil-centred, transformational learning and believe that such dynamic learning is the catalyst to positively change individuals and communities, nationally and globally through social enterprise.
