Andrew Elias appointed Global Partnerships Director at William Clarence Education group.

The fast growing William Clarence Education Group is delighted to announce the creation of this new cross-group position and the appointment of Andrew Elias who moves to the role from The Education Company from June 1st, 2021.

Andrew is well known across the international education sector for his passion for showcasing educators, his belief in collaboration and his ability to connect with people and schools around the world.

Following the unprecedented initial success of the Group’s ground breaking new personalised admissions platform, Virtual School Experience, Andrew will be leading the worldwide roll-out of the Group’s range of products, working and collaborating with schools across the UK and the world, helping them market themselves and stay relevant and engaging in the modern parent world.

This exciting new role will work closely with the publications arm of William Clarence Education - and International School Magazine; developing meaningful partnerships across UK and International fee paying education to spearhead the industry leading resource of news and opinion.

Elias said “This is a very special day for me. I’ve developed a great relationship with Steve (Spriggs owner of WC Education Group) and in all honesty, this role and challenge was so exciting because of its variety.  To work with such a unique audience and reach across and Virtual School Experience was an opportunity that I know comes around so rarely, it was just too good to turn down.

We want to bring educators together, to celebrate independent and international education and to help schools tell their stories digitally, but we really haven’t put any limits on our ambition. 

This is a long term project based on our shared values and in our minds, there are limitless opportunities ahead as to how we can help schools around the world. I can’t wait to get started!”

Steve Spriggs said “I’m very proud of how WC Education has grown to this point and I’m confident that Andrew will be a great addition to our growing team.  I had wanted to bring Andrew on board for a while and feel he brings a unique skill set to our partner schools and network, leaders and audience and is the perfect addition to our ambitious plans to connect every international school to their perfect parent.  I am looking forward to working with him on a variety of projects both with UK independent schools and international schools.”
