We aim to raise awareness of the wide ranging options that nurseries, schools and universities offer families and young people that we work with and to support families globally considering educating their children in the UK.
We work hard to reflect the work taking place in the education sector towards a more diverse and inclusive selection procedure and education. We are keen to explore the many education grants, bursaries, scholarships and more practical and career based opportunities available.
Our aim is to be a key opening doors to the many opportunities that are available to families through sharing innovative and exciting education news in our quarterly editions of Education Choices Magazine.
Several years ago a client, from Croydon, inspired the founder, Chloe Abbott, to set up Education Choices Magazine. The client approached CJA Educational Consultancy for help with her daughter to try to get her a place in a grammar or private school (with some bursary or scholarship options). She told Chloe that she had educated herself and was the first in her family to attend university. Against all odds, she managed to become a lecturer at a London based university, but she wanted an easier path for her daughter. Our client felt that many people in her community still did not know about the schools and options that were available to them and asked if we would try to share this information with these communities and families.
As a result, Education Choices Magazine celebrates the multitude of nurseries, schools and universities that offer young people so many inspiring opportunities across the UK. We are keen represent the diversity and inclusion that are increasingly a focus in schools and at university and the opportunities and benefits this is generating for young people from all backgrounds.
Sir Peter Lampl (Founder of the Sutton Trust) states: ‘Social mobility in Britain is low. The educational opportunities and life chances of a child born today are strongly linked to their parents’ socio-economic background. This is the challenge we face.’
Education Choices Magazine aims to support families from all backgrounds. We share news and updates from nurseries, schools, universities and also from social mobility experts alongside diversity and inclusion champions.
We hope that both through our Education Corner Podcast and the magazine that we are playing a small part in closing the social divide and learning gap.
