Online school tool for expat parents



A new online tool has been created by Lloyds TSB International to help expatriate parents find the perfect international school for their children.

The tool will give detailed information about schooling factors such as fees, term times, curriculum and more, for a number of popular expat destinations including Australia, Spain, USA, Canada, France, New Zealand, South Africa, Germany, UAE, Hong Kong.

Tony Wilcox, managing director of expatriate banking for Lloyds TSB International said: “Moving abroad is an exciting step towards a new life and adventures overseas. Pre-move expats will want to make the right preparations to ensure a smooth transition. That’s why we’ve created useful tools to provide guidance on what to expect in popular destinations. The first of these is an interactive international schools tool, which expats can use to check important details like fees, term times, curricula and contact details for a wide range of international schools around the world.”

Recent reports have spoken highly of foreign education, and many expats feel that their children will be more able to exist in an increasingly global job market with the experience of international schooling under their belt.
