Saalim Koomar


Brief info

Role: I am involved in both research and engagement work at the Hub. This means that I support the building and uptake of evidence to support effective decision-making. I have recently been involved in projects concerning teacher professional development, country scoping studies, and various Helpdesk requests. 


Background: I have taught in UK schools for 5 years. I initially taught French and Spanish at the secondary level but have also worked in primary and early years settings. Alongside this, I have completed a Masters in Development Studies at SOAS, University of London. I also sit on the board for an NGO working in Malawi where I previously implemented education programs.


Fun Fact: When I was younger, I made a couple of appearances on the children’s TV show the Teletubbies (very much still my claim to fame).
