Bea Ferguson's headshot

Bea Ferguson is a very experienced storyteller who loves to tell stories to any age. She has worked extensively with nurseries, primary and secondary schools, adult groups and residents in care homes. She has recently been working in high schools with Pupil Equity Funding and is passionate about storytelling as a tool to raise attainment and self-esteem, and in the power to aid imaginative and creative writing.

Storytelling sessions are always fun and, with younger children, very interactive with participative stories, songs and rhymes. She is also a very experienced trainer with children and adults and was a senior tutor on the contemporary storytelling course for adults run in conjunction with Newbattle Abbey College.

Feedback from a recent CPD session rated Bea as amazing, fantastic and supportive.
