Expats who are worried about how their children will adapt to a foreign education system have been offered a few tips from two international education experts.
According to Shelter Offshore, Kevin Bartlett, the director at the International School of Brussels and chairman of the board of the Council of International Schools, and Gordon Eldridge, the curriculum director at the International School of Brussels, have published a report which claims that the key to a good education is understanding the purpose of learning a subject.
The duo explain that with technology driving revolutionary change across all occupational sectors, schools need to be able to demonstrate to children why each lesson will be relevant to them in later life. If they are unable to do so, it might be time to change schools, the pair report.
For those planning a move abroad, Shelter Offshore recommends researching educational facilities via the internet, although discretion is advisable as there may be a lot of misinformation online as well.
The internet could also prove invaluable for those who are searching for expat medical insurance policies.
