Why: International Schools have a responsibility for supporting their students through the triumphs and challenges of transition. In many cases, the school provides the only constant in a globally mobile students’ transient life. It’s a fact that unmanaged mobility inhibits learning, however, schools who provide comprehensive transitions programs, can actually facilitate and enhance learning as they support all key stakeholders in their community – parents, staff and students – so that the parents can parent well, the teachers can teach well and the students can learn well.* By implementing comprehensive transitions programs, schools can ensure that mobility is not an inhibitor to learning but an activator of learning.
How: Globally Grounded consults to international schools to help them design, develop and implement comprehensive transitions programs so that the challenges associated with mobility are not traumatic but become levers for growth. They also provide workshops, seminars and presentations to all key stakeholders in a globally mobile child’s education on topics such as (but are not limited to):
