Luke is the Managing Director of the Independent Schools Cultural Alliance (ISCA). ISCA brings a delegation of students and their teachers from schools all around the globe together for a three-week July program in the UK. The program immerses students in British culture and history by visiting and understanding the most important historic and cultural sights and, more importantly, allows them to create friendships with like minded students from all over the globe and become truly global citizens. During the three weeks students stay at Charterhouse School or Wellington College, the two ISCA campuses. There are currently 47 schools participating in ISCA in the USA, South America, Australia, Europe and South Korea.
Luke has a BA and MSc degree from the University of Sheffield and previously participated in research on FE and HE policy in the UK during the coalition government. During Luke’s PhD research he worked on student pathways through education and the role of apprenticeships as an alternative to the traditional University route. Today Luke often speaks at events challenging the conventional assumptions around HE, both in the UK and abroad.
