Education planning – a starting point

One of the main challenges facing a family when moving home is understanding the educational journey that they are embarking on.

A move is not just a professional relocation, but, more importantly for children, an academic journey that will dictate future choices and options.

Before a family commits to a school or college in a new country, time should be taken to consider both what the future holds and what the past has given them.

This could include what a student wants to do when they leave school, what curriculum they have studying, how they have responded to academic environments in the past, as well as the length of time of the assignment and how that will impact on future choices.

This might not just be an academic consideration but how a school can meet a student’s co-curricular interests, support a special educational need or how they offer pastoral care to ensure that a child settles well.

Every single school handles children differently and parents can only make a judgement on which would be best by fully understanding the journey that the family are taking.
