Nic Abery is the Primary School Advisor for the Jewish Schools Network and creator of Israel70: Building Artistic Connections. Having worked in a freelance capacity for PaJeS, Nic joined the team in September 2016 to develop PaJeS’ existing successful school clusters and establish the Early Years cluster. In June 2016, she began developing Israel70: Building Artistic Connections to enable our schools to mark this landmark event in a meaningful and sustainable manner. With over 30 Primary and Secondary schools participating, this project has become a very exciting addition to the PaJeS portfolio. 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.
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 Finchley with her husband and two sons.
