As a result Rosena’s passion for her work, she was appointed Chair of the Sarah Key Teacher Training Group to facilitate the training of the 1st cohort of teacher trainers.

Rosena was invited to speak at the colleges first International Conference in Bangalore in November 2013 “What To Do With An Acute Locked Back” with guest speaker Archbishop Desmond Tutu and HRH The Prince of Wales.
