New Re:locate education guide: Focus on Europe

The new Re:locate Global Guide to International Education & Schools, available from September, will include a wealth of information on schooling options for expatriates in Europe.

Relocating family with boxes
Unlike some of the more challenging parts of the world and emerging markets, which can be perceived as unsuitable for families, Europe can offer relocatees the opportunity of a smooth cultural exchange in a wide variety of school types, including some of the world's longest-established international and local schools.Many of Europe's state schools are the envy of the world for their excellent teaching staff and academic results, while its prestigious private and international schools enjoy a global reputation. Finding a home and a school that meet a relocating family's requirements can be a challenge, however, as it is the most desirable – and hence most expensive – locations that often fall within the catchment area of the best schools.As the leading multimedia publisher for the relocation and global mobility market, Re:locate knows that many families require the guarantee of a school place before they will accept a relocation or an international assignment. And, as employers move increasingly towards a self-service approach to relocation benefits, it is more important than ever that they can refer parents to the trusted Re:locate brand for information and advice on selecting a school.Our new annual Guide to International Education & Schools, available in printed format and digitally via our new app, will be an invaluable resource for relocating families and the HR decision-makers, global managers and relocation professionals who support and advise them. It will give schools and destination services providers the opportunity to showcase their offering, both to families and to their advisers.Content will include informative articles to help busy HR departments and relocation professionals to support relocating families, covering everything from international curricula to choosing a school and submitting an application, with lively and engaging features to reassure parents about schooling choices, and directories of schools and education consultants in relocation growth areas around the world.A range of other topics to help families settle in their new location – from accommodation to careers for partners – will also be featured.The guide's extensive coverage of education in Europe will include information on choosing a school, with tips for parents, details of international curriculum options, and a look at the education system in Switzerland – the country which, in most of the major global mobility and expat surveys of the last year, has held top position for quality of life.To reserve your copy, to advertise, or to be included in the print and online directories, please email or call +44 (0)1892 891334.If you have editorial to contribute, please email
