Rachel is an ambassador for family-friendly employment policies and a champion for working parents. A former primary school teacher, lecturer, mentor and literacy consultant, she believes that parental support is the most significant factor in a child’s development and attainment, and that providing opportunities in the workplace through family networks and strong maternity/paternity policies is something that should be on the agenda of every employer of choice. 18 years ago she founded ‘Educating Matters’ delivering talks, seminars, webinars, workshops and clinics, as well as her 10-week Positive Parenting and Family Skills course, to thousands of parents in the corporate and public sector.
