Kathryn, the current Geographical Director of the British Council, will take over from Isabella Moore, who left CILT at the end of March after four years.
She has had a long and distinguished career at the British Council, where she is a member of the senior executive team with overall responsibility for the strategic management of the overseas network. A trained linguist, Kathryn Board’s career has taken her to postings around the world and she is a strong advocate of languages and their potential role in society.
Kathryn is expected to join CILT this summer.
