Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading premium international schools organisation, today announced that Lord Jim Knight has been appointed a member of its Education Advisory Board.

Having served as Minister of State for Schools and Learning, and then Employment, Lord Knight has extensive insight into education and employment policy. He is currently Chief Education Adviser at TES Global Ltd, the training and resource sharing service for teachers, and founder of the TES Institute, one of the largest qualifiers of teachers in England.

Chaired by Lord David Puttnam, Nord Anglia's Education Advisory Board provides valuable external perspectives to further develop the organisation’s educational offering across its global family of 73 schools. Working closely with Nord Anglia’s leadership team, the Education Advisory Board supports the continuous development of Nord Anglia’s programmes, curricula, teaching and learning to deliver outstanding academic outcomes for its students. 

Lord Knight joins fellow Board members: Dr. Joseph Polisi, President Emeritus of The Juilliard School; Dr. Jane Gaskell, professor and Dean Emerita at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto; Dr. Steve Munby CBE, a world-leading authority on school leadership and system reform in education. 

Commenting on his appointment, Lord Jim Knight said:

“Since starting life in the north of England 50 years ago, Nord Anglia has become the leader in international education. Its approach to personalised learning, innovative use of classroom technology, and its emphasis on teachers’ personal development is outstanding. I look forward to working with Nord Anglia to help further transform teaching and learning in its schools.”

Lord David Puttnam, Chairman of Nord Anglia’s Education Advisory Board and Digital Transformation Committee, said:

“Jim’s insights, global perspectives and passion for education are well known, and his appointment adds even greater depth to our Education Advisory Board. His belief that great teaching transforms learning reflects ours, and we are delighted to have him working with us to pioneer new and innovative ways to help our students develop their love for learning and their future roles as global citizens.”
