British Education_Delivering skills for the future
As HR and relocation professionals are aware, ensuring that accompanying family members are happy and settled in their new surroundings is crucial to the success of any relocation, whether international or domestic. Research has shown that, by affecting the relocated employee’s productivity, motivation and engagement, family members’ inability to adjust to their new life can lead ultimately to the failure of a move.Relocate knows that, for parents considering a relocation, their children’s education is top of the priority list. Based on our successful Guide to International Education & Schools, the new Relocate Global Guide to Education & Schools in the UK, features all the information parents need if they are to make the best decisions for their children, whether they are on an international assignment or relocating from another part of the UK.

Because we know that employers provide different types of support for different levels of employee, we cover state and independent schools, both day and boarding, as well as international schools. The schools that have contributed editorial understand the needs of children and families in transition, wherever they are moving from. They create diverse school communities that nurture the global citizens of the future.Wider family support topics – for example, careers for relocating partners and easing the transition to a new home and school – and directories of schools and education consultants also form part of the guide.
