Moving out into the world market

UK independent schools in Malaysia and Qatar will share their experiences at the Going Global Seminar in March

The Going Global seminar takes place on 4 March and will share the latest data, market intelligence and practical advice for UK independent schools considering international growth and development.

With the demand for English-medium education increasing globally, and with a British education remaining the preferred choice for many aspirational parents around the world, an increasing number of UK independent schools are looking to the international market for development possibilities. Several UK independent schools are already experiencing significant success.

The forthcoming one-day seminar led by ISC Research (part of the International School Consultancy, providers of data and market intelligence on the world’s international schools) will provide valuable advice for UK independent schools considering international opportunities. The seminar will include live Skype presentations by Bob Pick, headmaster of Marlborough College in Malaysia, and Mike Weston, head of school at Sherborne Qatar, who will each talk about establishing their UK independent school brand overseas. The seminar will also include an analysis of growth and developments in today’s international schools market.

The UK Independent School Going Global seminar will take place at Egrove Park, Oxford on Wednesday 4 March. Places are limited and registration is required. Contact Liz Dixon at ISC or call 01367 246009 for details. The price for the whole day, including lunch and refreshments, is £299.
