Professional Relo can help students of all ages gain access to international education in Italy. Like most European countries, Italy has a well-run public education system but the curriculum is conducted solely in Italian. This means that expatriate students, unless they are fluent in the local language, will need to attend an international school. These are usually easy to find in large cities and many smaller towns also have international schools that provide education for the children of executives at multinational companies in the vicinity. Many Italian parents also choose to send their children to international schools too, meaning it is not always easy to find a place.
This is particularly true for primary and elementary schools where places can be at a premium, although middle and high schools are not usually oversubscribed. This is an area where the knowledge and personal contacts that we have built up over the years become invaluable. Our staff are multilingual, with extensive experience in dealing with executive relocations from around the globe. We fully recognise the importance of ensuring that families are happy and confident in the educational choices that they make for their children during a move to Italy. Where an Italian education is chosen, we can navigate the bureaucracy and paperwork that joining a local school in a foreign country entails, dealing promptly with any problems or delays and completely removing the language barriers that can arise.
Making the right choices for international education in Italy
While Italian public schools follow the same national curriculum, private international schools use a variety of different schooling methods. The ones that are most commonly used in international schools in Italy are British, American and the International Baccalaureate. Professional Relo provides tailor-made advice on the different types of curriculum used at the international schools in the area of relocation and helps to choose the most suitable. Once a family decides on the preferred curriculum, we can help to find a selection of prospective schools in the area of Italy to which relocation is planned.
Making it easy to find the best international education in Italy
Many of the schools parents may wish to consider in large cities like Milan and Rome can be very far from Employee’s place of work. That’s why we provide support in finding alternatives representing the best possible compromise between school and work place distance to avoid long commutes. We also offer “Schooling & Orientation” tours to help parents make informed choices and advise them to contact and visit these schools before house-hunting so that commuting distances from school and work can be properly judged and organised.
