This webinar will focus on what research tells us about the life-long characteristics, qualities and skills of children who are raised internationally, often relocating countries. We will offer some practical strategies, including educational considerations, to help families adapt to life in a new place, and even consider how these skills could make coping with life during the global pandemic more manageable! This session is suited to parents and for human resources, relocation, educational or cross-cultural training professionals who work with international families. Our speaker is Mary Langford, Admissions Director at Dwight School London, is a regular presenter at FOCUS on this topic, and is an Adult TCK who attended 8 schools in 3 languages before completing her high school education. A dual national with 40 years' experience in international education as an Admissions Director, Teacher, Communications Director, and Head.
