Families matter: A neat solution to controlling assignment costs
Designed for HR and global managers advising parents embarking on an international assignment or domestic relocation, the launch edition of Re:locate Global's Guide to International Education & Schools is also an invaluable resource for the relocation professionals who advise them.
Keeping up with changeRe:locate recognises that the number of international schools across the globe is expanding at an astonishing rate. This can make it hard for HR and relocation professionals to have all the facts at their fingertips when they advise families on choices in this massive marketplace.That's where our education resources – and particularly the new guide – can help. Unlike anything else on the market, our editorial is specific to relocating families and their employers. Across the pages of Re:locate magazine and our range of digital publications (now available on our app), we give practical information and advice, share the latest news, monitor trends, and understand the difficulties facing families moving domestically or going on an international assignment. This is supported by a wealth of information on our website and our new online education newsletter, which keep decision-makers informed of the latest developments.Our education team develops relationships with the international education community, examining emerging trends in the education sector worldwide and gathering views from some of the world's highest-profile international schools.Often, busy global mobility professionals and HR departments don't have time to get to grips with the complexities of the fast-changing world of education. Guide to International Education & Schools' content includes informative, engaging features and practical advice on choosing a school and curriculum choices in relocation hotspots around the world, including the UK, the USA, Canada, Europe, China, Vietnam, India, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Middle East.
Directories of schools, school associations and suppliers are also includedThis is the first in a series of practical tools to solve some global mobility challenges. It also steers decision-makers in the direction of further support from education experts who can help individual families.The value of using an education consultant, particularly when sourcing schools at short notice, shouldn't be underestimated. A consultant should know the market and understand the fluctuations in school-place availability. In a group-move situation, the independent advice of a consultant can make all the difference to the number of families accepting a relocation offer, whether domestic or overseas.
Glowing feedbackRe:locate Global's Guide to International Education & Schools has been received enthusiastically by professional educators. Addressing delegates at the inaugural Re:locate International Education Forum, held at London's Institute of Directors in February, Dr Richard Pearce, consultant in international education, called it "marvellous, and full of expert knowledge".Marc Carter, head of admissions at the International School of London, commented, "It's packed with information, and, with so much solid editorial, is so much more than other publications that are simply directories of schools."Describing the guide as "spectacular", Heather Mulkey, marketing and admissions officer at the International School of London (ISL) Group, said, "It is informative and interesting and an extremely attractive publication. Most important, it is placing the focus on children and families in relocation, and bringing the importance of family support to the attention of relocation and multinational companies."
