The Educatus Story
Educatus was formed in 2013 and its set up was inspired by the real-life experience of its founder Sarah Teasdale.
Sarah found herself having to find schooling for her three young daughters as her family was relocated around the world through work commitments. Her experiences in places such as Ireland, Kenya, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain as well as on her return to the UK, meant that she understood all too well the stresses that come with moving to a new country and the potential for emotional turmoil when helping young children to settle into a new school in a different country.
Since it was founded, Educatus has assisted hundreds of parents moving to the UK and Ireland from elsewhere in the world. The company has focussed on building a dedicated team of consultants with experience in both UK and International education. Families are introduced to Educatus through the Global Mobility Industry, corporate clients and through word of mouth leading to discrete assignments helping individual relocating families.
For relocating families Educatus is focusses on offering a highly personalised and professional service, aimed at exploring every option within the chosen strand of education – be it private or state education, nursery, special education, college or university. The consultancy team understand that relocating is a challenge for the whole family, and use their educational experience to offer the right level of support and offering a range of services, all designed with the family in mind.
For global mobility and corporate organisations relocating employees with families, the challenge lies in showing the potential assignee the benefits of the range of education options available to them in the UK. Educatus provides an expert solution to an issue that can potentially derail an otherwise successful employee relocation project. The team understand that for parents, the decision to accept an international assignment can hinge on whether their children’s education and wellbeing can be assured. With this in mind, Educatus delivers their service with a careful balance tipped towards empathy, but always aimed at managing expectations and delivering results.
For corporations, Educatus offers a range of consulting options focussed on policy assistance and benchmarking, educational site assessment, group move advice and location surveys for schooling solutions. The team can even organise presentations to explain the many educational options available in the UK.
