Nic Abery is the Director and founder of LooktoLearn. With over 20 years of experience in education, Nic combines Religious themes and secular education through the exploration of museum art, objects and culture. Her expertise in developing integrated curricula and delivering training for educators has taken her throughout the UK, Europe, Israel and the USA.
Most recently she has created Israel70:Building Artistic Connections in partnership with PaJES. This twinning collaborative endeavour has 7000 participating students twinned with 10 Israeli museums to celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut in April 2018. Nic holds a B Éd Cantab (Hons) and a diploma in Museum Education from Leicester University. She is an increasingly proficient Ivrit speaker, loves to exercise outdoors and spends any free time in museums and galleries. She lives in North London with her husband and two sons.
Founded in 2009, LooktoLearn was established when the National Curriculum rigidly expected teachers to teach single subjects in isolation with one another. As the demands of the curriculum and teacher workload have grown, so has the need to creatively combine subjects, themes and skills. By providing bespoke Curriculum development, Education Consultancy, Museums Tours and Teacher Training, LooktoLearn has filled a niche within the faith schools community.
