A successful relocation is much more than just finding a new home. We appreciate that for your employees who have children accompanying them, finding the right school for each individual child, is often the top priority during their relocation.
Our Education Assistance programme will support your employee’s family to find appropriate nursery or childcare providers, schools for all ages, or further education options at age 16+, so that your employee’s children can enjoy a smooth transition into their new education setting.
An initial consultation call with our Education Specialist and Client Account Manager will be arranged to help your employee to navigate the various state, private and international schools in their target area as well as providing a general overview of the UK education system.
As soon as a target area has been identified, our Education Specialist will research the many options available, speaking directly with Local Authorities, schools or nurseries and admission representatives to establish placement availability or waiting times, as well as discussing the registration and application processes. Our Education Specialist can add real value, as gathering details from the relevant education settings can be extremely time-consuming.
An unbiased report will then be presented to your employee of our findings, including relevant Ofsted reports to enable your employee to shortlist their preferred schools.
Once a shortlist has been established, our Education Specialist will book appointments for your employee and their children to visit the schools or nurseries, often providing an opportunity to meet with the Head Teacher or the Admissions representative. We aim to book the visits to coincide with the Orientation or Home Search, to enable your employee to develop an overall impression of their new location.
Our Education Specialist will be on hand throughout to answer any questions your employee may have, and upon completion of the visits, our Education Specialist will help to liaise with the selected school/s or Local Authorities regarding the registration and application process.
