Liz Free in school

I passionately believe in the power of education to make the world a better place for adults and young people alike.

Before my current role as CEO and Director of the International School Rheintal, I have been a teacher, head teacher, and director in some of the world’s leading schools.  I am a globally recognised lead for professional learning and development and an advocate for our #GlobalProfession. 

Alongside this work I am also a global board member for the TES Institute and a strategic lead for WomenEd, with responsibility for Europe and Asia. I am a Founding Fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching and Fellow of RSA. I am author of the recently published ‘International Perspectives’ chapter of the Amazon number one bestseller ‘10% Braver: Inspiring Women to Lead Education’ book published by Sage (2019), a columnist with TES International and write for publications such as Schools Week, International Schools Magazine and Independent Schools Magazine. As a visible school leader, I advocate for the profession and speak around the world on the theme of leadership development and the global school workforce as we strive to create outstanding learning for outstanding schools.

These are exciting times in the global village of education and I look forward to connecting, leading and developing learning, realising the potential we have to improve the world and securing bright futures for us all.
