14. Educational Planning

Ursula Bukies & a UK based education planning adviser

Planning is essential, without it serious mistakes can be made that can define our children’s future or hasty decisions may be forced on unwitting and confused parents and children. The seminar looked at some of the tools available for mission and TCK families to use.


  • Missions should provide regularly updated country sheets of educational options available.
  • These country sheets and other resources and information should be shared around different agencies. Other examples would be the availability of special needs or testing facilities.
  • There are websites with good information for comparing education systems. Wikipedia is one such source.
  • A wiki closed user group to be established to put on education possibilities, personnel available and visiting different countries.
