      Raquel Malheiro has over 17 years of experience in education. She began her educational career as a Portuguese and Portuguese Studies teacher in Oporto British School. Here, she had the privilege of teaching children from a number of different backgrounds, cultures and religions. Raquel has a degree in International Relations. Currently she teaches Portuguese and Portuguese History. Since 2005, she has been the Work Experience Coordinator, an initiative carried out by OBS. The school aims to give students experience of being in a workplace, but not necessarily training at a particular skill.

      This enables the pupil to sample the working environment and working life of the adult world first hand. This coordination was something that Raquel was very proud as the feedback from employers was always positive. Students always received praise, not only for their behaviour, but also for the interest and knowledge that they demonstrate. The range of companies willing to aid their students has increased annually. This educational stage is a great help to many students, as it assists them with their professional development.

      Raquel has a close relationship with students, promoting a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, based, however, on providing an outstanding academic education.

      Outside of work Raquel enjoys travelling, reading, musical events and spending time with her family and friends.
