Innovation Supplement Out Now
In November 2020, Relocate Global launched the Great International Education & Schools’ Fair. The timing was designed to coincide with the schools’ admissions cycle in October and November when schools showcase their academic achievements, learning approach, facilities and their unique ethos and culture, to prospective parents looking for school places in the following academic year.As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic schools had immediate vacancies to fill and many families were waiting to repatriate or take up a new international assignment or a local relocation. The Fair offered a solution for schools and our community of parents, employers and relocation professionals.Out of the learnings from the School Fair this Innovation Supplement was born.We used the opportunity to capture the experiences of international schools and leading schools with an understanding of global citizenship, who have risen to the challenges thrown at them by the Coronavirus pandemic. Through the editorial coverage and a series of engaging webinars, we are able to share the innovation taking place in schools accelerating online learning and create technology solutions; prioritising and maximising health and wellbeing measures; supporting pupils, staff, parents and the wider community and exhibiting exceptional leadership and communications skills.The Innovation Supplement provides a wealth of articles from our editorial team as well as contributions from schools themselves. It is a supplement to our Guide to International Education & Schools. You can read all the International Guide articles online as well as download the Ebook. A new edition will be available for the new academic year in 2021/2022 plus new Country Guides to view online.Our thanks go to all the schools who contributed to editorial and the schools that participated in the November School Fair who are listed on page 52.
