Re:locate Global at the 2016 COBIS Annual Conference


Re:locate Global are delighted to be supporting the COBIS (Council of British International Schools) Annual Conference 2016, May 8-9. We will be exhibiting at the conference this year and will be showcasing our wealth of education resources designed to help the global mobility profession gain a deeper understanding of the international education and schools community.

International educators from across the globe

Each year international educators from across the globe gather in London as COBIS members convene at their annual conference to discuss excellence in the teaching of a British curriculum to a global community of students.

The conference attracts Principals, Heads, Governors and Senior Managers from British International Schools worldwide plus colleagues who are interested in learning more about the diverse and growing International Schools sector.

The theme of this year's conference is ‘Authentic Leadership: Inspirational Stories for Learning in British Schools Overseas.’

Due to COBIS’ expanding numbers, there is a new venue for the conference. The InterContinental London - The O2 will play host to hundreds of delegates this year.
