Keith Clark

Head of Leadership Appointments, International

As former Executive Director of UWC (United World Colleges) International, a post which he held for 12 years, Keith led the transformation of the overall UWC movement, providing leadership and strategic direction to the global organisation. He worked closely with the 15 UWC schools and colleges, particularly the boards and heads of each, as well as with volunteer national committees in almost 150 countries. This work led him to an intimate understanding of the functioning of schools operating in very different national and cultural contexts and under Keith’s leadership there was a 50% growth in the number of UWC colleges.

Before UWC, Keith worked at Royal Holloway, University of London, where he was responsible for UK and international student recruitment, communications and publications.

Since leaving UWC, Keith has continued to work with schools and international organisations, focusing on governance, management, organisational development, strategy and structure.
