William Clarence Education reports increase in US enquiries as families set their hearts on UK university and school places

Leading London education consultancy, William Clarence, announced this week a 25% spike in enquiries from families looking to relocate from the US to the UK.

Managing Director, Stephen Spriggs, reported the boom this week, referencing a 25% increase in US enquiries during October-November, 2017, in comparison to the same period in 2016. A large portion of new enquiries coming from the US have been from families of children aged at milestone school-entry points – 11+, 13+ and 16+ – with their sights firmly set on coveted places at UK schools and universities.

Mr Spriggs commented: “We have recently dealt with an increasing number of US clients looking to relocate to the UK, for a variety of reasons. These clients are a mixture of West Coast families – high achieving professionals, looking to set a similar standard and priorities for their children – and East Coast families, who are more akin to British families in their outlook and mindset – they have big ambitions and they want to provide the very best for their children.“

A number of these families are made up of both American and British parents, who are looking to relocate back to the UK, while others are US-born and wish to relocate for business reasons. Perhaps more notably, the firm has worked with more US families with children approaching GCSE and sixth form age, seeking help and advice on how to choose the best school to prepare them for an application to their preferred choice of British university.

The firm also observed that the relocation trend works both ways; with UK and European students increasingly attracted by prestigious US colleges, and US students setting their goals on winning entry to elite British institutions such as Oxbridge. William Clarence Education is well placed to offer assistance on both sides of the pond, at each stage of the transition process, and Stephen Spriggs added that students are keener than ever to set the ball rolling in their application process:

“Traditionally, families would apply to UK universities, including Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, during their final year of study in the US. What we’re seeing more of now, however, is families coming to us to assist their children aged 15-16 in choosing and applying to study at sixth form level in the UK, putting them in a better position to ‘follow on’ and apply to their preferred British university.”

In 2017, William Clarence Education partnered with Arcus Advisory, adding US College Admissions Advisor Susie Cochin de Billy as a permanent fixture on its own board of advisors. This not only gives the firm an extended reach and stronger connection within the US college system, but also helps the firm understand the transitional steps needed for US students to best prepare for higher education across the pond.

Stephen Spriggs added: “With education consultants and school placements advisors on both sides of the pond, and an unparalleled reach into some of the most sought-after UK and US institutions, William Clarence is perfectly equipped to ensure that families transition smoothly. The network we have built allows us to assist families at every stage of their relocation, from choosing the right school, to landing a coveted place at their first choice of university. We can even provide private tutors to help ensure that students are supported during the process and are prepared for entrance exams.”

IGEL Becomes First Manufacturer of Endpoint Computing Solutions to Integrate deviceTRUST

December 14, 2017IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, today announced that it is the first manufacturer to integrate deviceTRUST’s dynamic context awareness technology into its endpoint computing solutions. With deviceTRUST and IGEL, IT organisations are now able to ensure that corporate data remains secure, and that compliance and regulatory requirements are met when end-users roam between their IGEL OS-powered endpoints.

“Modern workspaces present significant challenges for IT organisations due to the diverse array of networks and devices users leverage to access their corporate networks. Added to that are the wide range of locations they are working from – customer sites, home offices and coffee shops and cafes, just to name a few,” said Ainsley Brook, UK & Ireland Country Manager for IGEL. “Regardless, data must be kept secure, and compliance and regulatory requirements must be met. This is why we are proud to be the first manufacturer to integrate deviceTRUST’s industry-leading dynamic context awareness technology.”

With deviceTRUST, IT organisations can control which business-critical applications and corporate data end-users are able to access, based on the location from which they are working. “For example, if a worker is accessing their corporate desktop from an unsecured Wi-Fi location, they may only gain limited access to their applications,” continued Brook.

With its patent-pending technologies, deviceTRUST delivers more than 200 hardware, software, network, security, performance and location contextual properties into virtual and physical workspaces. The contextual data is always kept up-to-date and any change triggers an action, making it easy for IT organizations to manage security and compliance as their users roam between locations.

“The growing adoption of application and desktop virtualisation to meet the needs of a mobile workforces combined with the existing security, compliance and regulatory requirements is a challenge for many IT organisations,” said Sascha Goeckel, CEO deviceTRUST. “The IGEL-powered endpoints when paired with the detailed context information deviceTRUST provides, enables a secure and context aware access to the business resources that meets all requirements.”

Key Features and Benefits
deviceTRUST meets security, compliance and regulatory requirements by incorporating end-point and user context into business policies. Some of the key features and benefits of the solution include:

  • Single view of detailed context data via a centralised dashboard
  • Seamless integration into existing workspace management and reporting solutions
  • Fast and easy deployment with no additional infrastructure required
  • Subscription-based licensing
  • Immediate ROI
