Tes Institute has launched a new global advisory board, bringing together decades of experience from across the world to help us ensure our teacher training and development programmes are sector led by the global teaching community.
The advisory board is made up of school leaders from eleven countries including South-East and East Asia, Europe, Middle East and North Africa.
The board will sit every term to advise on strategic developments in international education, each time focusing on a different range of topics. Our current board members are:

- Andy Hodgkinson – international consultant, United Kingdom
- Aneela Bhukari – Beaconhouse, Pakistan
- Chris Seal – Shrewsbury International School, Bangkok, Thailand
- Daniel Jones – NACE, Europe, India, Qatar, Canada

- Kai Vacher and Natasha Hilton – British School Muscat, Oman
- Liz Free – British School of the Netherlands, Netherlands
- Nicola Singleton – Modern English School Cairo, Egypt
- Richard Pratt – Charterhouse Asia, China

Led by Sian Harris, Global Director at Tes Institute, the inaugural meeting focused on teacher training and CPD needs, drawing on the diverse experience and insights of board members. Commenting on its success, Sian said “it’s fantastic to get such a strong group of leaders together from across the world to share their experiences and help us develop what we do in line with a real variety of challenges and needs in different regions and learning contexts.”
The global advisory board forms part of our mission to work more closely with school communities in order to support and connect teachers worldwide.
