Knowing how the education system works in Spain maybe one of the most important things you need to find out about before choosing whether or not to educate your children in Spain as well as how to go about it.
What Do I Need To Know About the Spanish School System?
Understanding the similarities and differences between the Spanish and the UK education systems as well as knowing how best to prepare your child for Spanish school can go a long way to eliminating doubts about the unknown and can help you to ensure a happy and swift settling in period for your child, no matter what the age they enter the Spanish school system.
Understanding the Spanish School System
Last week I read the Schools & Education in Spain e-book put together by Susan Pedalino of the Eye on Spain team.
As a fully comprehensive guide that has been put together using first hand experience of the schooling system in Spain, the Eye on Spain Schools & Education e-book is invaluable for any ex-pat parents in Spain as well as any parents-to-be who may be wondering about how the Spanish education system works.
Before reading the Eye on Spain e-book I admit to knowing slim to nothing about the public school system in Spain. In the UK it can sometimes all be about the area you live in, whether you go to church or not and whether you can afford private education or not, but Susan manages to untangle the system so that it’s much easier to know what you can expect for your child in Spain.
As a mother of twins, Susan explains how the UK and Spanish systems differ in the syllabus they follow, school costs, how to get involved as parents, the pastoral care your child can expect and the important issue of bilingualism and integration. She also gives valuable tips on how to complement the Spanish school system to ensure your English child doesn’t lose out in any way and advice on how to grapple with what may appear to be a Spanish “mañana” attitude to things such as date of the first day of term!
Will the ebook be useful for me?
The Schools & Education ebook is perfect for any parents with a child of school age, irrespective of their current level of Spanish, age or even the school year they are in and for 15 € it’s a sound investment.
