Keep up with the world of education

As HR and relocation professionals know, ensuring that accompanying family members are settled in their new surroundings is key to the success of any relocation, international or domestic. Research has shown that, by affecting the relocated employee’s productivity and engagement, family members’ failure to adjust to their new life can lead ultimately to the failure of a move, with all the associated human and financial costs.For relocating parents, their children’s education and future opportunities will be at the top of the priority list. A multitude of topics will need to be considered before they can choose the right school. These may range from curriculum choice to the benefits that a state, independent or international school can offer. They’ll also want to assess which type of school best suits their circumstances.Through the Guide to Education & Schools in the UK, they’ll quickly get up to speed with changes in education and exciting developments in areas like science and technology and language teaching.As well as exploring education options in the state sector, we reflect the wealth of independent schools that support expatriate and international students, as well as UK relocating families, by covering such topics as educating the global citizens of the future, Brexit, the modern-day boarding experience, and helping international students to excel in British schools.A cross-section of schools that understand the needs of children and families in transition have contributed editorial. We also include advice and reassurance from education consultants and cultural experts, to help parents to read between the lines and make the right education choices for their child and their family.
