Meet the Facing History UK Team

The UK has been growing. Learn more about who we are and what we do.

Our Team has been growing over the last couple of months and we’d love to introduce them to you!

Beki Martin, our Executive Director, is accountable for delivering on the organisational strategy, and leading and managing the team. We then have a Programme Team and a Development and Operations Team. 

The Programme Team makes our work a reality. They develop and deliver our programme activity; training and supporting our teacher network, facilitating CPD workshops and seminars, and delivering educational projects with teachers and students.

The Development and Operations Team runs our community and fundraising activities, as well as our office admin. They keep our supporters up to date with the latest Facing History news, organise fundraising and awareness raising events and work with our Partner organisations to grow the Facing History community.
