Roz and Freya joined Team Up in September 2018 as Programme Managers. They are delivering our programme in primary and secondary schools across London.
Roz Karim completed the Teach First Leadership Development programme in 2013 and has taught in a number of primary schools in London where she also gained experience as a SENDco. Prior to becoming a primary school teacher, Roz also taught abroad and worked as a Drama and Movement Therapist in a variety of settings in the UK.
“Addressing educational disadvantage is something I feel strongly about - Not only did I find Sharla's story inspiring but I also feel that Team Up presents an effective solution to increasing the attainment, confidence and aspirations of pupils from low income backgrounds.”
Freya Rowland joined Team Up following several years as a secondary school Maths teacher in Birmingham and London, having trained through the Teach First route. She passionately believes in the value of providing disadvantaged students with the attention, support and guidance that they need to flourish.
"I am really excited to be a part of Team Up, as I think the support that our tutors provide to students is fantastic. This kind of individual help isn't available in a large class, and students can slip through the cracks. It is lovely to see students develop their skills and confidence through taking part in our tutoring programmes, and then to hear that, as a result, they are going from strength to strength in class as well."
