Rebecca initially taught veterinary nursing and animal science for eighteen years, firstly in Wales and then in England, going on to run a selection of departments and areas of the colleges that she worked in, before moving to the Education Department at Cardiff University. She then taught biology for twelve years at St David’s College, Cardiff, a large FE college, where she was Head of Science. Whilst teaching in Wales, Rebecca was a Peer and then an Additional Inspector for Estyn inspectorate, working as part of team carrying out college inspections.
In 2015, Rebecca moved to Cardiff Sixth Form College, initially as Head of Biology, then very quickly becoming Head of Academic Studies and Outreach and so being responsible for all teaching, learning and assessment at the college. Cardiff Sixth Form College (CSFC) has three hundred and fifty international, boarding students enrolled.
During the time that she worked at CSFC, the College was rated as the top school in the UK in The Daily Telegraph and The Times A Level league tables, with 99% of students achieving A*-A grade in 2021. It was also awarded the top GCSE school in the UK in the small schools’ league tables for GCSE in 2019.
Outside of school life, Rebecca enjoys spending time with her family in France, cycling, running and long walks
