Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
Freya is at the very core of the Dandelion team.
She works tirelessly to support the site managers in the day to day operations of Dandelion, and maintain the quality offered across all sites. Freya also keeps Emma and Hayley's feet on the muddy ground! In her spare time Freya is happiest relaxing in a yoga class, cooking, and walking her dog Luna, with her husband (who owns a brewery!)
We are available to speak at conferences and training sessions.
