Mara has over 25 years of experience in education. She and her business partner, Rajashree Anand have founded EduMenTeach to help support teaching and learning in a variety of ways. This course specifically taps their expertise from their experience teaching training teachers for the Post 16 sector in the UK. Many of their trainees had to engage with employers as part of their own curriculum and oftentimes employers were challenged when coming into the college or secondary setting. The teachers had little time to support the employers and employers felt a bit challenged in these settings with Gen Z prevailing. Mara has experienced first hand the success of this course.
