Elinor Kruse joined the British Council Music team in January 2015 as Project Manager for World Voice, a music education and cultural exchange programme that brings song and creativity to classrooms across the world.
Elinor's background is in political science and economics; she completed her undergraduate degree at Bath University and went on to spend time in Brussels to do policy work for a private company and later for a political research institute and think tank. She completed a Masters degree at Sussex University before joining the British Council's Graduate Scheme in 2011 and moved to Casablanca to work in the English & Exams department. Still with the British Council, she moved to Dubai to cover the Middle East and North Africa region. More recently, in London, she worked on the World War One centenary commemoration activities, which included the education project Football Remembers and a series of global radio broadcasts.
In her current role, she particularly enjoys seeing World Voice develop in countries or regions where the programme can make a meaningful impact on children and teachers affected by crises.
