Education & Schools

Relocating with school-age children is one of the biggest challenges families can face. In fact, family issues consistently top the list of leading reasons for assignee failure. With international assignees accompanied by a dependent family standing at almost 50 percent, it's a fact that companies relocating their staff around the world simply cannot ignore. Read more

Many relocating families now even demand the security of a school place before accepting a new assignment, so we know just how important it is to help families make the right choices for their children. We recognise that the number of international schools across the globe is expanding at an astonishing rate – all the while, global mobility professionals are challenged to keep up with the pace of change and are asked to help families make crucial education decisions in this massive marketplace.

Relocate Global's education team has successfully built and developed relationships with the international education community. Through our education editorial we examine emerging trends in the international education sector and gather views from some of the world's most high profile international schools as well as providing practical resources for global mobility professionals.

Relocate Global is in a unique position to help bring the global mobility community, including the international education sector, together to tackle the emerging issues, to network and make connections across the world. Read less
