When she returned to the U.K., Emma took up her post at Marlborough College teaching Philosophy and Theology, Religious Studies. She also became the inaugural Head of Theory of Knowledge (ToK) and Critical Thinking while working with the school through the accreditation process and first years of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. From 2012-2014, Emma became IB Coordinator at Godolphin and Latymer School in London before being named Head of Projects at the Stowe School in Stowe, U.K.

For over a decade, Emma has been teaching, training in, and training others in the U.K. secondary qualifications as well as in the IB programmes.
